A reshoot from last year, a shot I was never quite happy with. This shot looks alot more peaceful than it was, 1 degree above in a 20mph wind...brrrrr

Thanks for the DD *BillyWebb

Thank you to all of those of you who have taken an interest in this image.

Suggester writes: "Every image in Alex's gallery are gems. However this one is my personal favorite. Technically a great shooter, with something to offer any landscape fan. I would hate to describe any of his images as HDR, because there is not one that is surrealistic. What ever technique he uses, its not over processed and fantastical. Its just dam good photography by any definition." ( Suggested by BillyRWebb and Featured by SheTakesPics )

Is this taken in England?  Because that looks like the exact tree from the 1995 Pride and Prejudice.  Weird right!

Got to this spot at a perfect time, I love when I myself, and other photographers experiment with the sun like this. Fantastic composition, lighting, and colours mate! :)

well one of the great things about living relatively close is I can work out when the perfect time is and get there quickly when I need to. Thanks

Absolutely beautiful, and calming, too. I'm left longing to sit on that waning branch and simply watch the sun set.
Fantastic capture. :heart:

Well I wouldn't want to do that! Hmm...I will sit on the edge of the earth instead, then...and hopefully not topple over!

that's not what i meant! isn't there a cliff overlooking the ocean in that photo? or is that just a hill...i suppose it's hard to tell.

Alex37 Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
It's a hill overlooking west Devon, there;s a rather thick haze so its hard to tell what lies beneath!

:iconlapoetry-n-photo:
LAPoetry-n-Photo Featured By Owner Jun 13, 2009  Hobbyist Photographer
oh, ok. well, i will sit atop the hill. it's probably safer than a cliff edge, anyway. and i hope the haze is from the earth cooling, and not pollution.
