'Danbran' took me to his favourite parts of the wall and we had a great walk and some wonderful banter.

A strong silhouette against that sky - the cloud formation seems almost to emanate from the tree. I hope Danny didn't charge too much for the privilege Smile

This is the wall hanger not just for you, but one to hang on many a wall. Finely spotted and well worked in B&W. Simple and symbolic.

Excellent composition, the black hills frame it nicely, showing the grandeur of the landscape well. The three is fabulously silhouetted against the sky, one can almost count the leaves! (IF LOOKED LARGE!)
Well done my friend,

A masterpiece that I would love to hang on my wall!

Full of symbolism, found in the female "V" that frames the Tree. The bold and magnificent sky just adds to the appeal of the work.

Best regards,

Bill
