Taken on a recent trip to Ely where the lighting was flat and the drizzle miserable; the camera didn't thank me for taking it out.
Three horses in the surrounding fields entertained us by taking turns to have a scratch using the branch of this enormous plane tree. It creaked and groaned, the whole tree shook.
I've tried to get an old-fashioned look by converting to b/w then using a duotone, (converting back to rgb to save as jpeg.)

Good angle of view, but the image itself is a little on the small side. Nice toning. Kind regards John

Thanks for your comments and clicks.
I wanted to show the vastness of the plane tree with Ely Cathedral just visible in the background.

Good "period" feel to this, could just as easily be late 19th/early 20th century (when did photography get going properly?). Nicely composed & presented. Grossly under-clicked IMO.
