It's just wonderful !!! It's even apocalyptic like if the tree was the only one survivor of a terrifying war ... Planes in the sky are ones of the enemy and the clouds could be ones due to bombs ... I'm in a good mood today, don't worry but it's what the photo tells me ... ANd you are a survivor too because you have the camera in the hand !!!
David Johnson: Wow Ann, great comment!
I'm quite a fan of the lone tree genre - this one has the extra of the vapour trails which clearly opens up some lines of thought (see Ann's comment above!!)
David Johnson: Snapped a bucketload of solitary trees yesterday, anything to take my mind off getting lost in the Derbyshire Peaks, found the car just before it went dark!!!!!

A fine example of a lone tree David. As for the con trails, I once entered a competition with a photo of Blackpool which had aeroplanes in the sky and she stated unequivocally that judges just did not want to see such elements. Shows what she knows.

Great capture anyway.
David Johnson: Judges eh, whats the old chestnut, 'There's ones that do and then there's ones that Judge.....'

Looks like everything's going from right to left.
David Johnson: West to East...er breezy up here everyday.
A bit of a departure from your usual shots of Manchester and Salford David but I like it. Ver nicely done.
David Johnson: Hang on to your hat as there is a bunch of lyrical countryside vistas queued up...Ive been playing with an ND8!

See you took Posh Totties advice and moved far away,this looks bleak.nice one.
David Johnson: Was it something I said????? Fitted net curtains in case she pops 'round......
Nice tree picture bending in the direction of the aircraft
David Johnson: Howling gale the Norm up here and this is also the Sky motorway for all the planes popping off to North America.
I'm into shots of lone trees (see brianaw on 19th.January) myself David but haven't yet done one in mono. Like this very much.
David Johnson: Not one for overdoing landscapes, well not country ones anyway, but get drawn towards trees....have loads from yeserdays gloomy trample through the back end of the Peak district....off to Blakemere in Cheshire this afto so its trees and water......

wonderful as alwayssmile
David Johnson: Ha, I'm doing tha funny hand gesture thing now...
I'm a really a fan, you see ! A likey for me ! Great shot, very consistent tree in its isolation.
David Johnson: Thanks Florence, local climate means that things have to cling on to life, so sparse tree population.
blah blah good blah result
David Johnson: Was told off by he spam bots t'other day so filled the gaps with blah and ****

I love the movement that emerges from this tree. The treatment contributes to an apocalyptic style. I love it...
