A wonderful shot, composition spot on and the lighting could not have been better, giving contrast between the f/g and darker mountainside.

The lighting and tree structure make this quite a graphic comp. As others have said, the contrast between sunlit FG and dark background is highly effective and I think it is one of the best ways of isolating the subject in a 'lone tree' type image. Requires patience and craft though, so very well done indeed. The tree itself is a thing of beauty in it's shape.

Wonderful lighting across the landscape and a beautiful lone tree. GrinGrin

As you know these trees have beautiful bark and the smell of the leaves is powerful. I had one in the back garden until fairly recently but it had grown to over 40 feet and in a 30 foot garden that is just a bit much Tongue and the neighbours were none too happy. Sadly it had to go - sad for the tree and for my wallet at over £200! TongueTongue
