I??ve always found something appealing about lone trees in the landscape so when I spotted this one on my way to Rugby this morning I dived into the handily placed lay-by right opposite to take some photos. At the time (about 10.30am) it was pretty dull and overcast, with a uniformly grey sky, and it immediately struck me as being ideal for a high contrast monochrome treatment. However, by the time I returned past the same spot at 5.30 this evening the light was much better and there were some wonderfully dramatic clouds behind the tree. I thought I??d post both photos here to see which you all prefer!
