The Oak Tree

By Philpot  
I have not been "feeling it" too much of late like a lot of people I would have thought, and have at times struggled in late 2020 despite having a great family and home life. The lowest point being on the Police Missing Persons lists for well over 24 hours as I just took off in the car turned the phone off and went under the radar. I ended up in the Lakes which is my sanctuary. I'm hoping for a better time ahead.

Anyway I managed to get out on Saturday for the first time this year and I'm looking to get a better grip of myself. This was just a 30 minute walk from my home and the conditions of a good snow storm and low fog made the scene something very special as the backdrop was just a white out. I was out for 90 minutes and enjoyed it immensely. Hope you're all keeping well. KR Phil

Really beautiful image! It really is good for the soul to connect with nature, especially when you come away with something like this.

We all need to switch off sometimes - it's OK to not be OK, especially at the moment. Hope that trip to the Lakes did what it needed to for you.

Wish I had scenes like that near me! Looks like you found the right vantage point at the right time though. 😊

Take care and keep well.

A super image, Phil, the tree plus the others in the background, perfectly positioned 👍 I could live with that hung on my living room wall 😃
Wish I could get motivated to out with the camera, but being told only to go out if absolutely necessary (which photography apparently isn't) doesn't help, nor all the doom & gloom and scaremongering on the news 😳
