Good Morning Everyone,
Have you ever been walking when something unexpectedly catches your attention? That is what happened here.
From other angles this dead tree had little appeal, but when seen from this angle, suddenly it came to life, like a phoenix rising from the ashes!
To me, it took on the appearance of a dragon, raising its wings powerfully aloft; for that reason, I called it ' The Dragon Tree'.
Thanks for your interest.
Have a good Sunday, Bev :-)

Good evening Bev,
The power of the imagination to see this and the power of the photographer's skill to convince us very nicely combined. A wonderful winterscene with the contrails and clouds adding to the graphical appeal!
Have a fine start of the week tomorrow,

I like very much your composition. It looks simple but it isn't. Only with two element, earth and sky you create this nice form. I like it very much!

Good graphism of the gaunt old tree against the blue sky, with excellent sharpness & good depth. I like the sidelight from the right revealing the textures, & the patch of snow in the shadows. The v shaped jet trails compliment the v shapes formed by the tree. Tfs!
