Very nice capture; good pov and nice layout.
Those fallen trees are also very typical on the Mediterreanean coast.
I'll post you as WS one of my "fallen trees" from one of those tiny mediterranean bays.
TFS and best regards

Beautiful and romantic mood with superb composition. The details of the photo are picturesque, excellent colours and clarity. Have a nice evening!

I like very much the picturesque way that the fallen tree fills the whole frame, while allowing the view of the lake and making a wonderful frame to the little sailboat. I think you give me an idea for my next post, as I have a series of a fallen tree near a river.

appealing composition and a remarkable clear view.

Interesting composition with this old tree, sailing boats and the sea. Ie like here the colors - grey and blue. Romantic view. No signs of spring yet.
Didi (53297) 2009-04-17 17:28
Nice difference between the close subject and the misty background and interesting selective setting on the tree.
The spring lights are great.
danos (80945) 2009-04-17 19:07
the view of the sailing boat through the fallen tree make the scene unique.The calmness environment as the waters too,make the shot extraordinary beautiful.Well done.
Have a nice weekend,Danos

A very nice and original subject. The picture is also very well-composed and your timing was very good with the sailing boat. Personally, I am not too fond of strong spring lighting. There is a great risk of chromatic aberration when shooting bare trees and of over-exposure. I would have loved to see this scene in back-light with the bare tree more or less in silhouette and the light coming through the sails of the sailing boats. TFS and have nice weekend!

belle photo de ce lac superbe a l' eau si bleu.
Ces voiliers ancrés au loin forment presque un v comme mes canards en vol.
Cet arbres déraciné en avant plan donne tout son effet a votre prise.
Trè bon POV.
axiotea (21649) 2009-04-18 8:21
A well chosen pov for this one, with the tree naturally framed in between the sail boats which balance well the image. Good contrast and colors too.
devimeuxbe (58557) 2009-04-18 14:47
good picture with a strange situation for this tree. It's also nice to get the boat behind.
bracasha75 (24487) 2009-04-19 3:10
Nice natural happend and nice captured from you
Thanks for sharing
jhm (131812) 2009-04-19 3:38
The dark grey colour tones of the dead tree care for a nice picture.
Also the misty atmosphere in background care for splendid image.
Friendly and nice for look at.
Composition and colours are very well.
Very well done, TFS.
Have a nice sunday,
pablominto (53744) 2009-04-19 4:15
In spite of the tree filling most of the frame, the sailboat is the eye-catcher!
But still the tree is the main motif, and judged by the main trunk we are talking about hundred of years...
A well framed spring mood, but pity for the tree!
jlbrthnn (79791) 2009-04-20 3:26
I am a little tired me also, but not as much as this unhappy tree. The idea is excellent and made you make a pleasant photograph equipped with one great depth. Good light and colors. Cheer.
Have a nice day
rodgerg (55767) 2009-04-20 3:29
A nice image full of peacefull and serenity. Good managment of light and superb blue sky. The tree in the FG give a great prospect effect.

Triste fin pour cet arbre, mais il nous donne matière a une nature morte avec en arrière plan plus dynamique avec ce bateau en mouvement.
berek (32312) 2009-04-20 19:52
its clever nature framing, idea my friend. I love sail ship view behind the tree branches. you managed very good for this. its hard work because of focus control. Thanks for your sharing.
danyy (0) 2009-04-20 23:14
une souche d'arbre morte un peu encombrante, mais heureusement, elle n'est pas laide et sa tortuosité est un peu esthétique. Une photo où dominent les bleus et où ce petit voilier fait tout son effet
PaulVDV (19395) 2009-04-20 23:18
A very good composition with this fallen tree and its branches reaching for the sky.
Beautiful with the sailing ships left and right of it.
Best regards, Paul
Graal (94156) 2009-04-20 23:30
an interesting spring landscape, nice wild nature. Pleasant view with the sailboats in BG. beautiful weather You had. Good photojob.
Nicou (111282) 2009-04-21 1:20
superbe compo, queul bel arbre avec ces branches encor dénudées, est-ce qu'il va faire des feuilles, en tout cas sa position est très originale, avec le voilier blan, le bleu en fond, grandiose compo.
Bravo et amitié
JCG (35129) 2009-04-21 3:24
This died tree, in spite of its presence in foreground, does not remove anything with the beauty landscape located behind. Beautiful management of the light which makes it possible to emphasize the boat and the natural colors. A very pleasant walk, thank you Wilson.
With all my friendships and a very good day,
Charo (51208) 2009-04-21 9:16
Really a beautiful spring day with a light and beautiful colors. Original composition with good depth and detail.

claudeD (28848) 2009-04-21 11:09
excellent fotojob with a fine composition and perfect lights.Thank you for your detailed note.TFS.
With regards from Luxembourg
pierrefonds (53298) 2009-04-21 14:54
The reflections in the water are assets to the composition. The branches of the trees in the foreground have a graphical effect. The point of view takes our eyes toward the mountain in the background which is giving depth to the photo. The nice blue sky is sending a light which is enhancing the colors of the scenery. Have a nice day.
John_F_Kennedy (41888) 2009-04-22 2:47
Great sky, I love the blue. Good textures, light and sharpness. Excellent work.
Cricri (96959) 2009-04-22 11:55
Triste sort de cet arbre mais qui fait une très jolie composition avec les bâteaux de chaque côtés et le bleu tendre du ciel, bien vu et réaliser
Good evening for you
TopGeo (38128) 2009-04-22 14:43
Very nice capture

Excellent photo job Good POV and idea with a good curtain in composition and perfect lights the sail boats.The details of the photo are picturesque, excellent colours and clarity!
TFS and best regards
fulvio52 (8314) 2009-04-23 11:05
Yes, there's definitely a very romantic feel to this one. No real tangible sign of spring yet, but a lovely display of greys and blues and a format that does great justice to the view. Good job! Have a nice evening, I'll be seeing you.
Vasa (16658) 2009-04-23 16:23
Original composition after an irresistible inspiration in front of this rare subject. I think I should do the same. It is interesting to see the shots the moment before end the moment after this one, that you keep in your pockets. Must be a nice walk in Cumbria.
So glad Wilson to see you again. have wonderful spring with your Canon,
gunbud (34066) 2009-04-23 17:44
The gnarly old tead fall leads the eye to the beautiful blue lake and sky.
Wonderful Springtime composition with clear colors and excellent sharpness.
Muse (34936) 2009-04-24 0:35
Jolie vue printannière d'un endroit charmant.
Belle lumière et tout bon cadrage
siolaw (37644) 2009-04-24 7:20
An interesting scene with this huge fallen tree right in the water... the root on the right also is a relevant detail.
Colors and sharoness are fine.
Jean-Luc (5488) 2009-04-28 7:39
Quelle belle composition graphique avec ces branches d'arbres qui remplissent tout l'espace de la photo!
Les couleurs sont superbes.
Philippe (11836) 2009-05-10 11:27
Hi, Wilson. There are good details on the tree and its branches make nice lines occupying the space of the image. It's also interesting to see the white of the boats on the right and left. They contrast well with the blue of the water.
Have a nice evening,
bakes888 (18499) 2009-05-10 22:48
Hi Wilson. Nice capture, well timed to catch the yacht. Good use of the square format and well composed for depth. Nice work and thanks for sharing.
Have a good week, Paul.
anducina (8407) 2009-05-24 2:47
Beautiful and interesting scene, the blue lake and sky and the white silhouette of the boat seen behind the old fallen tree, with its twisted branches.
TFS and have a nice Sunday !
Henryk_Bilor (20799) 2009-06-01 23:09
Interesting view at the sailing boat through this fallen tree. Great light too.
Have a nice day.
s_lush (16128) 2009-09-29 6:57
Interesting composition of this shot, with beautiful foreground and contrasting sailing yachts! This gives a depth and 3-dimensionalness to the picture. Very bright and spring-mood scene! Great job!
Juntas (7958) 2009-10-01 8:58
Hi Wilson. Nice view with that tree well captured. Nice inclusion of the sail boats. Great colors anddepth. Well done. Best regards. Paulo

kurumuş ağaç dalları arka planı çok çekici hale getirmiş,renkler çok güzel,
emjleclercq (15780) 2010-01-15 13:32
Interesting point of view, espcially of the roots of the fallen tree, and with a good depth thaks to the lake behind.
All the best,
mauro61 (52623) 2010-09-19 10:54
fantastico il POV scelto con il tronco che fa intravedere il lago con una tonalità di luce perfetta.
Bello il bianco della vela che compare a margine,
Ricx (13489) 2011-02-21 2:50
Hi Wilson, I ask myself, while looking through your gallery, why? Why am I sitting in an office when there is such a beautiful country to explore.. Coniston is one of my favourite lakes having spent about two months there a few years agao (installing cricket Pitches). I loved the isolated roads , the quarries and the beautiful rivers and streams.. You have captured this tree and yatch well and it deserves all the accolades it has received. I am pleased to be able to move it onto 100.. well done and congrats Rich
Longroute (19392) 2011-03-23 12:41
This is a fine scenery much in my taste. I like both the fallen tree and the sight of the sailing boat at the right.
It's well composed and there is a fine light which makes the image alive.
ines8 (5986) 2011-03-27 11:07
Splendid picture, all the elements and details are beautiful, the tree is wonderful.
