Splendid are the patterns on the ground and your perspective, the tree as if opening his arms, and this lyric sky. Superb B&W with elegance ~

I lovely image, I especially like the middle zone behind the tree.

Ron from Saint Louis, United States

There's something poetic [for me] about a solitary tree ... and this one seems to be doing its best to conceal the rollings hills in the middle ground of the composition. Beautiful tonal quality ... my eye is especially drawn to the softness and subtlety of the sky and hills in that middle ground ... ron
