The sudden late snow made this tree into an item of fascination and beauty and yet there was a sense of loneliness, a longing for the forest that suddenly filled me.


I am delighted that others find some inspiration in this picture which was taken from the window of the Appenzeller Bahn train in Switzerland while on the move between Appenzell and Gonten.


This photo has now become the logo for to restore forests so that our trees are no longer alone.


For anyone who wants to know the settings were f16 and automatic shutter speed using my 50mm Leica Noctilux lens on the Epson RD-1 Body set to 200 ASA
