I seem to have developed a bit of a fixation over lone trees ….

Was lovely to be here …. waited patiently for the patch of sun to head my way and light up this area … so from:

    wow! superb capture! the crop made really such a difference!

  • Thanks Dinesh – I missed the shot of when the sun actually lit up the tree as I had to run back down the hill to move my car (it’s a VERY narrow road and I thought it might be in the way .. it wasn’t, but by the time I got back to this spot the tree was back in shadow.)
