It was a good day, weatherwise when I took this shot, but you can tell just by looking at the shape of this tree, that it has been shaped over its lifetime by the winds that constantly batter it. This is another tree that grows on Coxtor,Dartmoor, and the view in the background is back towards Plymouth and the English Channel and also part of Cornwall.

Excellent composition with the tree and cloud complementing each other. You should try shooting in RAW Mike, you would be amazed at how much it would facilitate the processing of an image such as this.
