Great stuff, spy / Kevin!

I particularly appreciate the 1st photo - and how the lighter bottom part of the tree contrasts with the dark ground, and the darker top part of the tree contrasts with the lighter sky. That's 'magical' imho!

I think you've shared a number of photos of this tree with us before (even driving some hours to get there late at night?) Or am I remembering something else?

In any case, all shots are brilliant. Thanks for sharing... Oh yes, the light from the night sky one (that light patch and the stars and dark sky) - I don't know how you did that... but it works wonderfully!!

Thanks again for your comments and taking the time to look.

Paul, the light patch is a cloud system moving west (away from me) over the mountains and the reason it is so illuminated is because that system is directly over a small cluster of towns and what your seeing is the light pollution from them reflecting up into the cloud. The shot was approximately 17 seconds long at ISO 2000 which brought out the milky way stars and the tree and ground around it was lit up by one single farm light on a pole behind me a couple hundred yards away which lit up their drive way.

Glad you liked it!
