It was a perfect day to visit the Moorland high above Peter Tavy yesterday.
The steep hillside is covered in granite boulders of all shapes and sizes and amongst them are the skeletal remains of an Oak tree,long since dead yet still standing well bleached and weather-beaten keeping an eye on all below.
A perfect spot for a well deserved cuppa...

very nice B&W photo. Maybe the POV good be a little bit lower so that the dead tree is more in the sky? Now the tree is disappearing in the background.

Another "topclass" b&w capture in your gallery.
Very good graphical effect.
TFS and have a nice week ahead

this is wonderful! Almost surreal in concept and therein lies the attraction. Works superbly in monochrome as it brings out the textures and starkness of the landscape so beautifully. Controlled execution and imaginative presentation. I love it!
Have a great week - B.

An image that well suits the black and white treatment to accentuate the graphical content. A fine array of tones and textures on display in this very well presented composition.

Really amazing shot. The image of the tree framed against the stones is very powerful and beautiful. Its bent shape shows off how it has been struggling against the elements. The black and white treatment works very well in this situation and the dead tree among this stone desert creates an eerie atmosphere. Good job also using the polarizer to bring out the sky. This is inspired photography ! Very well done.

Ooooh I love this. I would never have guessed it was England, it looks like Namibia or something. Beautiful stark landscape, wonderful light and superb shapes and texture. Thanks for sharing, have a lovely Easter.
Hugs to you and G
