Ditto Andy's comment above. Add to that 'a fantastic elemental mood'.

The art is in its sublime simplicity, the flawless composition and the superb exposure. A beautiful landscape.

- works better with that sky than it would with a "fine" one

Fine capture Dougie. Is this the one near to the boundary between Argyll & Bute and Highland regions?

Works very well indeed Dougie. These lone rowans, safe from the deer and sheep, have always seemed to me to be the spirit of the Moor and Glencoe....you've captured it so well against that sky.

Thanks to all, I was wandering through some old "negs".

Great composition - all the elements come together superbly. Rock plantings are one of Bonsai culture's forms and this image just shows how Bonsai really is just attempting to emulate nature in miniature. Nice one. Bruce.

Like it! Great sky and atmosphere. Probably look good as a B&W also.

I know this tree well - great composition with a menacing sky. Agree with above that it would also make an excellent monochrome image,cheers,

Amazing it is a very powerful image in its simplicity and to convey the strength of a tree so well.

Have an RC on me mate. This rock always amazes me and often draws my eye of the road as I pass it. Well captured.

I've passed this tree for years waiting on a sky like that - damn !

Sublime Douglas, well done.

That is a cracking sky.
Great composition.

Cheers Simon, looking at it now, I wish I had a 3 part pano, but there it is, maybe another time.
