Gnarly Trees

I pass by these trees on my morning walks with Kona.  I've always liked how they look but never could get a good capture of them though I've tried many times.

I took this shot 3 days ago at 6:32 am.  1600 ISO, 1/100, f4.5.  Cool trees yah.  BTW, anybody know what the pink thing tied to the tree is for?  I see them all over the place . . . on poles, on bushes.

Anyway, I took this picture this morning at 6:03 am . . . a half hour earlier than the other shot. 1600 ISO, 1/15, f2.8.  I like how the morning light is highlighting the left side of the tree.  I think I'm gonna try and get more shots like this.  Wish me luck.
