...we've lost two trees on the moor within a year of each other. I found this image while doing a clear out. It's been reported already by another photographer. Phil Restan on this site, this is my tribute only.

This location would not be the same without the tree, and you captured a good one here Dougie.

We also lost recently the remains of the old pier at Loch Etive - it just added to the atmosphere of that wonderful part of Scotland.

The old pier didn't fall down Malcolm, the need for a new pier down there to remove trees as cheaply as possible caused the old pier to be demolished, it was stacked against a wall the last time i was able to get all the way down there without dodging giant machinery.

Always sad when one loses a well recognised natural feature in such a landscape, esp. when it's a tree. I think I have seen a similar image from Phil previously.

Fine light and your favourite winter tones Dougie. The horizon looks off but I guess that's just the slope of the ground (never visited the tree myself - I guess it's a pleasure I will now have to forego).

What a shame these old trees have to fall down but I guess that's life. Wonderful colours here though Dougie!

Fraser the moor does drop away to the east here, I was very conscious of the horizon.

good lead in with the stream, one cant help liking old trees that are wrinkled and mishapen. I like the rich tones in this picture

That is such a shame Dougie. After looking for several years, I had to be shown where it was in 2010. I'm glad now that I was.

Standing proud, reaching for the sky, that casts a wonderful light upon it. Well captured, lovely image.
