Firstly, thank you Lee for the advice!
This is near where I live in the lovely little village of Penn and Tylers Green in Buckinghamshire, England. This was taken in the peak of summer when the weather was really nice so my friends and I usually walk through these fields and end up at a nice pub for lunch and a refreshing drink. The tree is split in half so it was probably struck by lightning, we have photo-shoots here all the time!
This was also taken before I got an SLR, so I took it with a Sony DSC-W55 and tweaked the contrast/ brightness levels..
