A magnificent specimen this. Captured in all its glory against the threatening sky.

I thought you had changed this to B&W, but now i see traces of colour in the lower part of the sky. It's a very elegant composition of this magnificent tree, which shows a beautiful silhouette against the grey clouds. It has a fantastic shape.

credo che tu abbia fatto dei miracoli per ottenere questa foto, la luce non è stata d'aiuto, molte le cose che disturbano, ma le hai sapientemente nascoste dietro questo magnifico esemplare.

Excellent exposing for the bright sky has made a good silhouette of the trees. Excellent low angle viewpoint.
Very well done
Wish you a very nice weekend.

I thought the thumbnail was showing a b/w photograph, but I see some hints of colour here. Beautiful weeping tree in silhouette, and well placed in the frame to give us a glimpse of the far landscape. The washing line (?) is a slight distraction, however.

Nice silhouetted view of the beautiful tree. Like the composition with the tree placed on one side of the frame. The view of the town in the BG and the heavily overcast provides for a nice backdrop. Good light management. Thanks for sharing.

The tree looks like an old giant ready to fall over. Nicely captured with good details. I like the silhouetted image. Well done, tfs.

Hi Silvio, Beautifully composed image. The silhouette of the tree against the cloudy sky feel like a storm is approaching in any minute. Interesting perspective and nice mood. Thank for sharing
