Artist's Description

June 2009: A weatherbeaten tree on a winding, single-track road over the hills past many a lonely croft and farm on the isle of Islay. The wind and weather have battered that tree over the years but not beaten it into submission.

Update June 2013: Sadly, this tree succumbed to the winds after all. When I passed here recently there were just a few broken branches and roots left.

Nikon D200, Sigma 18-200mm F/3,5-6,3G, 31mm, F/9, 1/500s, ISO 200, RAW capture
Location: Islay, Scotland, UK, Latitude: N 55°48,080’ (55°48’4,8"), Longitude: W 6°17,890’ (6°17’53,4")
