I seem to have a thing for twisted ankles! Sad lol I love how the tree seems to be getting pulled in by the cloud. Works well in b&w. Smile

It seems I have a bit of a thing for photographs of twisted hawthorns. Mind you, who can blame me if the photograph is as delightful as this one? However, unlike Tom, I don't think the cloud is sucking the tree; rather, I think the cloud has been blown off the tree. Anyway, this gets my vote.

Gorgeous. I have a thing for twisted brunettes, and I was delighted when I found my wife Smile And she didn't need processing in Lightroom or Photoshop. Lovely shot. Cheers, Martin

It's like the rooted tree is saying "wish I was a cloud".

Just checking in for a minute or two. Where is this ?? Do I need it ???

Miss you Sad When you coming up again, got lots to tell you.

Love this tree Mari and its great in Mono. It really gives that North Wales feeling of cold, blustery and windswept.

This is a stunner, Mari. Two simple elements perfectly arranged and processed, with some vital light on those twisted limbs.

Wonderful shot Mari; love the old bent and witherered tree, the way it catches the light and that cloud it's just sneezed out Smile

No leaves it has, no thorny points;
It is a mass of knotted joints,
A wretched thing forlorn.

Couldn't resist putting those lines on from W Wordsworth Mari . xx

A really great image . Love it in Monochrome . Reminds me of an Ansell Adams . Perfection . xx
