Hope Has A Place by JonnyGoodboy Hope Has A Place by JonnyGoodboy
I`m always on the lookout for solo trees like this,surprised I haven`t crashed my car yet :slow:
For a few months now whilst driving up from the valley below,I`d noticed and could see the the outline of three trees spread out against the skyline,so set out Sunday evening and spent a few hours trekking the moors to find and shoot them.
Found two but the third eluded me,but I`ll have the bugger :shakefist:

It was very tranquil and calm up there,the only other people I saw was when walking back to my car a middle aged couple had brought their table and chairs and sat out having their evening meal whilst watching the view (which will be on another shot) and sunset...beats the TV :relax:

Thanks for looking friend,have a good one!

You know, I think your solo trees are absolutely unique.

Once I was on a business trip to another city and hubby and I were searching for a solo
tree so I could take a photo... and there was NONE.

Now I have identified one, in the highway that takes us to the hut, but I always have a
bad light (either it is midday or too dark). I hope being able to take a photo of it one day...
before a storm takes it down or such :).

This photo is beautiful, love the sunny day !!!

What a beautiful photo! Excellent color, composition...I love the contrast in textures from the smooth, flat grass to the rugged rocks and soft clouds! I must say, it would still be a nice picture without the tree, however, it is so much more because of it! Wonderful shot :-)

Apparently you really went the *extra mile* for this magnificent shot - thanks for sharing this amazing view! I really like the way the rocks are leading to the tree, just as a natural staircase - great composition. (And while further looking on ... isnŽt there the face of a dragon in the clouds aiming at the tree which is leaning away from it?!? ... or is this just me ... or the beer? ;-) )

Thank you Len,it was good timing,had only been there for a couple of minutes and the place got lit up very nicely for me :aww:
Would have liked to have stayed till sunset but I walked couple of miles to another location and by the time I got there,the sun had disappeared over the Mountain range :doh:

Superb clarity and compostion. The use of elongated cloud is a masterstroke.

Oh I hear that! I am always on the lookout for solitary trees too, mainly in fields of wheat and I have had my fair share of reminders from my Missus, "Will you please keep your eyes on the road!".
