I`m always on the lookout for solo trees like this,surprised I haven`t crashed my car yet 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
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
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 .
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? )
Thanks Calimer for the kind comments mate,I was very pleased when I found it and saw that natural lead in lines of the rocks,knew it would make for a good comp and there is def some kinda demon face in those clouds,I see it too
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 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
Suga,how you doing,haven`t seen you around in quite a while,thanks for the positive words my friend I don`t have any ND filters,just a Circular Polariser,I`ll be getting some LE filters sometime this year I hope though
