Wonderful shot, love the lace-like branches.
Chris: It look a lot of twiddling to do this Astrid. Bill's picture today shows why I will never do HDR..

a wonderful tree! Great silhouette!
Chris: It is ancient and grand Philine, worthy of some time & experimentation
There are few things in life more beautiful than a naked tree, Chris, and this is a fine example!
Chris: I agree with you Ginnie: thank you

You took this one a hundred years ago, Chris
Chris: Had I been born a century earlier than I was, and had I had a comprehensive twiddling kit I might have done just that thing Lisl

The tree is a fabulous structure which we rarely stop to appreciate, so used to the we are. This one has been twisted and thrown around a bit judging by the branches.
Chris: We have all been twisted & thrown around in a metaphorical sense haven't we Chad
Very good. I am pleased that you are now taking twiddling seriously
Chris: You will additionally observe that I am not RUINING my artworks by the over-use of HDR and all its attendant HORRORS!
You have captured it beautifully Chris
Chris: Thank you kindly Janet

A fine sentinel embracing the setting sun.
Chris: A bit of backlighting can work wonders..
Lovely shot, Chris. Oak trees look so beautiful in skeletal form.
Chris: This is my favourite time of year when some trees are coming into leaf whilst others are bare
very much albumen oriented in the XIX UK school, Chris; I know you are a man from another era!
Chris: I come from the stone age JC
It would be interesting to see what it looks like in the morning. (grin)
Chris: More colourful than this Mary!

This has a nice antiquated look to it; rather like the photographer. I do like to see trees in winter; you can see its structure clearly.
Chris: I have a pre-antiquated appearance: in truth I am only aged 21
Oaks are fascinating... great twiddling...
Chris: Guess who I learned my skills from Larry..

Quite good Christopher ;-)
Chris: Err..surely brilliant rather than quite good
Quite contorted, I wonder if coppiced, not like the stuff of old used for building ships smile
Chris: I doubt if it would have passed the shipwright's standards John

A bit scary, like the Disney Forest Trees in Little Red Riding Hood.But I see G'ma's house.
Chris: Eeek - so you do!
What a lovely old tree, it has certainly grown to quite a size over the decades.
Chris: It certainly has Brian
I like it.
Chris: Thank you kindly Jacquelyn
Good evening Chris, very beautiful silhouette.
Chris: The joys of light evenings eh Scotia!
