This old boy stands out in the middle of a large open field. I imagine all kinds of birds and critters stop here to look around and take a break. I have seen many of them over the years. It must have been closed for cleaning this day. I have been known to use a tree for a rest area more then once.

Quite dramatic, Tick. That cloud filled sky is absolutely complimentary for for that big guy. Well presented.

Impressive and very fine image Owd Fella Tick (OFT). I haven't seen a colored version of this image, but I assume that the monotones have enhanced it's 'strength' and beauty.

Perfect one for the Wednesday B&W challenge.

An impressive looking tree with its bare branches against that moody grey sky. Nice one Tick.

"I have been known to use a tree for a rest area more than once." That could explain the absence of leaves. Good looking silhouette work, Tick.

I bet this old boy has seen many seasons come and go. Very thought provoking my friend. Excellent photo and the B&W really adds to it.

Great in its simplicity Tick. B&W creates such a moody image - great for the B&W Challenge.

:) a very exposed rest area.
It is a lovely winter scene well suited to B&W and the shape of the tree is wonderful. The image exudes an air of loneliness.
Added to the BWC - thank you Tick :)

My thanks to all who leave comments for my work and to those of you who like one enough to make it a favourite. To touch just one person that way makes each image worthwhile. . . . . . . . . .. . . . "The question is not what you look at, but what you see" ~ Marcel Proust
