:wow: You picked the perfect spot to shoot the tree so it that it's in line with that valley. :nod: It makes all the difference in making it look good. It's nice too that the ebbing sunlight is right behind the tree as well. :clap:

Such a wonderful picture...I had to make a painting of it. [link]
If it is alright with you may I sell the painting, I'm trying to raise money for a new camera.
