Go for a view on Black.

Sometimes I feel like this!No matter how hard you try to go up, you get squashed down. I just wished I made as nice a shape when I am being squashed....

So this is from the misty evening out on the heather covered downs near to my house. This particular tree seemed to make its own little mountain range, which I liked a lot. It seemed to reach down to the two distant trees and sort of gently stop them from straying. A kind of shepherd of a tree, which I guess gets a bit Entish! ( I didn't go for the 'Bent Ent' title, might be a bit too offensive, to Ents) I liked the scene enough to take a few different shots, some with more room around the trees, which in some ways lets the scene breath more, but I liked the contained feel in this square crop also. It was shot on an adapted 50mm Contax Zeiss at about f/4.0. Thanks for all of the kind comments on previous upload, all much appreciated.
