Wild and attractive. (They said that about me 50 years ago.)
I liked the delicate toning and the 'treatment' of the sky.

Nice one Rod. That sky is scary in a sneak-up-behind-you-with a cheese-wire kind of way.
Love the toning, it contributes massively.

Hi Roddy, "grimly" is good as it's getting close to the "brutal" that I see. Hard, brittle tree against soft but threatening clouds. Do you think you could just pop out & shoot this again in HP5, develope it to death, print it on the hardest paper for max grain, then wash in ice cold water to reticulate. "Only a ten minute job" as my manage would say, but you would turn a great image into a Masterpeice! Best regards, Si
