Well, further to my post http://forums.steves-digicams.com/fo...mp;forum_id=85 some of "my favourite things" within nature are trees. I love the majestic and individual beauty of trees: swaying in the wind, giving shelter and often food to animals (and humans).

It's great how small almost "insignificant" saplings can later really shape a nature scene and be very significant! Here is a tree growing in a grassy field in a nature reserve about 10 minutes from my home...

... and then about 40 minutes later (at 16:42) as the sun was already setting lower in the sky and the colours and hues start to take on that "golden glow" I captured this other tree, of similar size... but in a different area of the nature reserve.

In this photo I love how the grey clouds were gathering in the background - but the blue patch of sky remained too.

Thanks for looking all!!

Paul

Paul, very nice. the combination of late afternoon light and the dark clouds of the storm offer a delightful dramatic effect.
