The sun was bright one winter day and plenty of light passed through leafless trees to reach the bare ground. Wavy patterns were apparent in both the dark trees and the bright sunlight on the ground.

The result was patterns that are quite strong in a black and white photo. This is one of my favorite photographs and I believe it looks especially good when printed large.
