Posted this some time ago but as a black and white image. At the time there was some interest in seeing it in colour. Taken some time to get round to it but here it is.

It's called the Philosopher's Tree because of the shape of the trunk. Seems to be asking 'why?'

I remember the original very well, and I like this better. Is it a straight colour version or, have you played with it, just a little?

Very nice sky lovely atmosphere.
