Caressed by the sea breeze, two twisted and wind bent trees mirror each other on the South Downs above Eastbourne in East Sussex, England.

A different location but the same appreciation of form and colour.
You have positioned yourself perfectly for this shot, to give a natural link up the hillside between the two.
Aren't the colours lovely!
What a difference the sun makes!
Have a lovely Sunday,

Simple but pleasant picture with lovely colours.
Also the yellow flowers in meadow gives a extra touch at the picture, together with the both trees.
Excellent composition, nice captured
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice Sunday,

Good morning Brian
Something from an inland landscape this time form you! Not your usual subject matter but definitely your style with great colours and an underlying sense of the abstract and surreal. Your keen eye was observant here as always.
TFS - have a great day.

simple view but looking nice due to those two trees which are almost identical in shapes. Great light come colours. Depth is awesome. Like the POV chosen which aligned the two trees which added graphism to it. Superb composition. Tfs.

I particularity like the angle of the horizon, and the colours are nice and bright.

The windswept hill is beautifully peppered by buttercups Brian and their cheerful colour adds to this composition. You show perfectly well here how simple elements in a well balanced and managed composition can evoke pleasure in the viewer. beautiful. Warm regards rosemary

Again you were able to create from a simple scene a piece of art!

Classic minimalist photo, excellent sharpness and colors, perfect composition

This is an exceptionally beautiful photograph and I believe it owes much of its beauty and appeal to its very simple composition. That together, of course, with the wonderful light - you have watched for the shadows of the clouds passing above to achieve a patch of bright light in the foreground, a shaded are beyond and another bright area at the top of the hill.
Another impeccably presented photograph with gorgeous light and colours, fine composition and exquisite details and sharpness.

una foto ben costruita, la suddiviosione tra il verde del prato e il blu del cielo è ottima e i due alberi sono perfettamente posizionati.
Gran bello scatto, mi piace molto.
jjcordier (79297) 2013-07-28 22:48
Tu as réussi là un très joli effet et une photo de très grande qualité. On a effectivement la sensation d'un reflet de l'arbre dans l'eau.

very simple composition but with your fantastic colours it looks magnificent. Beautiful sky and lovely yellow flowers. Charming view.
kasianowak (8885) 2013-07-29 5:49
Great idea to include two trees this time! Strangely similar and at the same time so different. I like the colours and the contrast between the summer flowers and the blue sky.
Have a nice day
dkmurphys (58072) 2013-07-29 6:24
What a scene! I wonder how much you walked to find this POV! Great artistic result, enjoy a fine week.

durante la mia assenza da TE, hai proposto tante belle foto, tutte degne di nota e di grande qualità, quali sono quelle che proponi sempre.
Per la composizione mi ha particolarmente colpito questa che nella sua semplicità si fa particolarmente ammirare per la bella contrapposizione tra cielo e terra e per i colori ricchi di infinite sfumature dei campi arricchiti dalla presenza dei due alberelli che sembrano con la loro sagoma curva voler evidenziare la presenza del vento al quale evidentemente pongono perenne contrasto.
Un eccellente lavoro frutto di un eccellente taglio e di una ripresa molto per eseguita.
Ciao e buon fine settimana

Lonely trees Ida subject I love, and while I have not captured many good examples, this is a beauty and one I appreciate very much. Funny though that at first glance this is a lonely tree, but reading your note and exploring more shows this tree is not too lonely after all, with another down low in the Fran engaged in a very slow growing dance. Love your composition on this, the green on blue is always beautiful, but the flecks of orange in the green even more so.
