I do have quite the fascination with lonely trees, whether they be on a beach, in some dunes, in the country side or in the bay, and now on the headland, they never seem to lose the appeal.
So during a further investigation of this location (with Rod) via google street view this little old tree popped up while tracking that big smelling poo cannon.

Its a pretty photogenic tree, it could however have a bit more of a lean and possibly be repositioned alittle but hey, all in all pretty sweet. I did take quite a few images of this tree including some obligatory panoramas 😉 , the first one that caught my eye was the one with the tree over looking the green, I had wanted to capture it with the golf green and hole/flag in place, but it was well past closing time and all the green hole flags had been removed.

Simple black and white vertical panorama style image.

  1. Wonderful obsession, and both simple and elegant image, perfect match between silence and contemplative atmosphere.I could say, a picture with the soul, because it is this that inspired me. Outstanding work and precious moment. 🙂 Thank you so much for sharing this. +Gerard Blacklock

  2. Sometime I am astounded by the simple and for me often strange things just seems so beautiful! I imagine it's what doing drugs is like! A simple object or shadow just looks so amazing! I think it's wonderful that I can find these things! I wish everyone could see it too! But I'm not that talented!
