Lovely clear light and colour, the tree in the distance gives the image great depth!

Isn't that the way sometimes with the weather? Still it is a good composition and the subject is still a fascinating one . So all in all a click I think. Nick.

Hi Paul,

Shame about the sky but I'm sure that's happened to us all - more than once!

I think I'd crop most of the sky as it isn't adding very much to the comp, imo, but other than that tiny nitpick it's another fine image and well up to your usual standard.

Lovely light and colour, the lone tree gives the image depth. I like the way the clouds balance the foreground rocks.

Just the right amount of sky ... it's 'Big Sky' country after all. Also like the way the clint (or is it a gryke? Can never remember) lead your eye right to the tree.

thanks everyone
gareth the clints are what you'd walk along the grykes are the deep fissures you don't want to let your foot disappear down ......believe me it hurts.

Although the tree is in the distance it seems to stand out because of the suggested lines leading to it. Another great image Paul.

Hi Paul, sorry missed this as I was working all weekend, the side lighting on the foreground pavement is nice but that solitary tree makes it for me..........I must get up there one day.....Geoff

Very eyecatching view. Although you missed the moment you wanted to capture, the photo works well as it is. It's well worth posting, and sharing.

Great feeling of scale you've captured Paul the foreground is almost like a runway effect into the scene, well composed shot, Adrian
