Where there's a will - - -

By MrsS    
Good Afternoon and a mono to share with you today.

This is the single tree at Milarrochy Bay on Loch Lomond - a very focused creature, I'm sure you will agree. It managed to grow despite being battered by time and tide (poetic licence), weathers storms and just keeps on going, giving pleasure with steely determination.

Perhaps there is a message there for all of us - and a way to face 2014??? If you want something bad enough, then make it happen!!! Smile

Thanks for your time on this Sunday evening , I hope it's a good one. As for me, final touches before heading back to work tomorrow. At least there is a little more time to prepare, as the children only return on Tuesday.

My next upload could quite possibly be in 6 weeks time Wink

Cheers All!

I was picking up on your determination rather than that of the tree since it appears to be blowing quite a wind straight at you and it must have made it somewhat harder to capture. Great result !

Very atmospheric, very resilient, very enjoyable Fran. Try to find the time to be here - it's good for stress relief and pleasure (for all).

Thanks Adrian and MrGitt.

Good to hear it's still safe and sound, but quite sure there will be some who dispute your ownership, Paul 😆Wink

Always fascinated by this location. It is so surreal to see waves breaking on the base of a tree, Works particularly well in mono Fean,
