I took this picture on May Day.
The area is high above Okehampton on Dartmoor.
The temperature on the moor can be as little as five degrees by day and that is Springtime.

Beautiful the way the road embraces the tree and the clouds leading towards the road at the vanishing point. The colours are also very beautiful with the composition being the strong point of the image. Well done.

Good morning Gladys,
A great photo from the moor. Very nice framing and angle. Lovely colours and sky.

My dream is to make a beautiful picture of a lone tree. When I encounter a beautiful tree, always has some distracting element around. I like your composition with the diagonal line of the road leading the eye to the tree. The expanse of golden field and the beautiful blue sky make this adorable picture.

The lone tree makes the composition, providing the viewer with a focal point to latch onto. I like the warm tones offered by the landscape and that superb sky. An ideal day for photography.

This are almost the same temperatures from Belgium during these period.
The slope is very difficult for a bike trip but a lovely panorama view about these area.
Composition and presentation are pleasant.
Very well done, TFS.

You're capturing well this place by a good angle and excellent tone/clarity, so it's interesting and impressive to see the entire combination with the winding slope slightly, the ground where a reed grows in some places, and the cloudy sky. It seems to a typical landscape of South West England. And, a lonely tree draws out an additional good impact in this image.
