Not too far from my home in Oldham there is a wonderful area of landscape around the reservoir lake of Dovestones and the Chew Valley. This beautiful lone tree is almost solely responsible for my lifetime interest in photography (and that's another story!)

Heidi, Nenad Obr, Jack, elena and Arno, great to see you all here again admiring this oldish picture now. In fact I have just taken a similar one of this tree in the same style that I may post as well. This tree was in fact the subject of the very first photographic club prize that I received and so was responsible for my continuing hobby of photography 40 odd year on. Special thanks for all your awards. I shall endeavour to visit your galleries soon too,

Best wishes, Herb
