    Beautiful tree; the leaves kind of remind me of aloes. Gorgeous scenery, I love this kind of open landscape.

    Thanks Cindy! The light changed for less than five minutes, just before and after this shot and the few others i got, it was totally overcast.

    beautiful Karen – never seen anything like this tree before! love the way you set this up and the sky is gorgeous too.

  • Thank you Jane.. they are quite remarkable trees hey?? The ‘forest’ is quite stark and the trees have an independent and ancient feel to them…
