Those trees are a photographers' dream with their wizened trunks.
Frank L Croston.: Aren't they just,Alan,I come over all Ansell Adams every time I see one,then I see my results, and realise AGAIN,how good he was. smile
Looks like a painting Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Michael.I did like the colour of the soil.

Looks like a fool-hardy place to chose to sprout, Frank
Frank L Croston.: Tree's know no better,Elisabeth...smile Or perhaps they do....
Just about the ultimate 'Lone Tree' shot, one of my favourite subjects. Just how many images did you bring back from the U.S.of A?
Frank L Croston.: I do like them myself,Brian, thanks. I think it was about 5000,however,how many are any good is another matter. smile

Where's the lass
Frank L Croston.: I dunno'! I don't keep her on a lead....smile
The 'lifted off' presentation of this shot adds to the whole effect - great composition Frank!
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Martin,I went a bit over the top with the framing,as I thought there wasn't much in the shot. Though I quite like it now.
A great photo opportunity, Frank!
Frank L Croston.: I thought so, Tom,we will return here I'm sure,we only had a quick visit.

Wonderful capture, that twisted trunk looks as if it has been hanging on in there for some time
Frank L Croston.: Thank you, Anne,probably longer than me. smile
You took some cracking pictures in the old US of A Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much,Bill,I'm pleased you think so,a lot is owed to my location finder. smile
A nice idea here...
Frank L Croston.: Thanks, Aderonke,glad you like it.
what a find! seems like this tree has a second lease of life, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: It was doing well,Ayush,I love finding trees like this,like full size Bonsai's.
