Emmanuel Boitier - The tree


I cannot refrain from thinking that this tree and this mountain (Quinag, 808 m ASL) plays every evening a ceaselessly and always renewed show, the game of life, made with light, clouds and wind. I was happy to attend one of these shows. Scotland is one of these countries where the link which binds people to nature is most authentic, most almost spiritual.

    Nice mood and beautiful light. The central position of the tree works very well here.

    What a fantastic frame of a lonely tree, also the low sky touching the mountain top, and the light, beautiful

    The bold composition along with different dimensions of light make this simple, but graphic photo work! I have never been to Scotland, but it is on my list.
