A lone tree on the hill at Rendelsham, near Millicent – Limestone Coast South Australia.

Amazing spreading and uplifting clouds made for a good back drop. Maybe it’s what nature is all about, putting healing oxygen back into our world…..

Canon 400D 17-85 with CIR Polarising filter.

Converted to black and white in photoshop CS3.

    Whoa! Super cool composition/capture here Steve!

  • Thanks Shelly, had to run around in the paddock to try and get the angle right and unfortunately had to leave the tree almost central – it was the only way this one worked.
