Beautiful composition and amazing cloud caover.

Thanks Alan. I just wish the tree had been bent in the opposite direction though.

That would have been conventional--and very nice. But there's an interesting tension to the photo this way.

Hi Marilyn, what an eye opening observation. As I made my previous comment, at the back of my mind there was a niggling feeling that it was still ok as it was. I couldn't figure out why but your comment has made it clear. Thanks for your illuminating insight.

thanks for entering the contest! when you get a chance, please cast your vote for up to 5 entrants right in the contest forum thread where you posted your photo. see rule #4 for details.

also, please re-read (i trust you read all the rules once already ;) rules #5/6 about the counting process, according to which all contestants are expected to play a small part in counting, unless they have a good excuse and cannot attend to their duty when the time comes (from the 22nd to the 24th) which i've been told is Easter weekend (saturday - monday)! if you require just a couple days after the 24th, then it is OK.

thanks again and good luck! :) cheers, brian

Hi bartowian. The link didn't work any more, but I did find your bovine family. Looks like they would like a nice trip out into the fields. Greetings from the UK.
