The Red Tree

One from the archives that's a bit of a novelty (at least when I saw it) taken with the E-500 and processed in LR3.

Gee Paul, that is unusual.
Apart from the tree being a scene-stealer, I love the background in this one. All those interesting lines and gorgeous colours.

Re: The Red Tree

It must be art - it's horrible
Looks like some fantastical creature trying to burrow its way underground.

Interesting, I don't suppose you remember where on the Welsh/Shropshire border. I've got a friend who lives on the Welsh/Shropshire border and could e-mail him to ask if he knew anything about it.

Yes, it's an updated reference to a photo.net post from the late 90's.
