Photographer's Note

OK! I know! There are images of oilseed rape fields all over TE at the moment, but it’s the tree I am interested in.
We pass this field frequently in the car on the way to the moors where we spend a lot of time walking and taking photos. It’s on a minor, but busy road. The first time I noticed the tree was several years ago. I like the shape of it and the farmer had ploughed the field with the furrows leading to it and I thought it would make a good image. Of course I didn’t have my camera with me. Every time we passed I looked to see if it was worth a photo, and over time the farmer did all kinds of things but never ploughed the same way again.
About three weeks ago I noticed there was some oilseed rape starting to grow, so I made a mental note to return. I also noted that it would have to be afternoon for the sun to be in the right position; that’s if the sun was going to put in an appearance at all.
Anyway here it is: The Tree

I zoomed right in for this one, but if you prefer something more minimalist, or if you’re an oilseed rape fan there is a wide view in the WS

Incidentally this is more or less how it came out of the camera (after conversion from RAW); very slight contrast added to the rape only, sharpening on the tree only.
