    Re: Lone tree Buttermere

    It works well, and sums up the mood of this time of the year.

    Hi Alf, great photo, not sure if it’s the right tree? Has the original tree died? I did notice there were a couple of single trees round the lake though.
    Kind regards Mike

    It’s very nice. I like a good silhouetted tree.

This is the Lake District in the raw, not a pretty sight but an awesome and inspiring one. It works!

    Thanks John I appreciate the assesment

    Yes ...Of course it does.

    In all fairness I've not seen anything of yours that doesn't work. You have a lot of talent, and a great location, but it's the talent which shows through every time.

    Just one more great shot from Alf

    Thanks Keith

    Thanks Jim
    Yeah that is a plantation. I would rather disagree that this is a natural scene as the whole of the Lake district lacks the diverse vegitation that it should have because of the ongoing meddling of man.
