Lovely stuff Frank, using all of available nature to make a good composition

It feels even more dramatic than usual in B&W, Frank. That tree is a poem!

How does that twisted tree get any sustenance, Frank?
Frank L Croston.: Well in the monsoon it will get rain almost every day Elisabeth, and snow in winter.

That shadow is keeping the tree grounded. Great picture Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Anne.
This rates as one of the very best I've seen you do from the canyon Frank, being in B.& W.really lifts the mood of the shot.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Brian, I thought b/w suited it, glad you agree.

It's incredible how the trees can rake root in any small gap and sustain life. I like the drama that B&W has given this.
Frank L Croston.: It never ceases to amaze me. Glad you like it Alan.
Cracking picture Frank
Frank L Croston.: Thanks very much Bill.

an electric image, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you Ayush.
it looks like a gnarly old tree hanging on to the rocks...

we may have lost one of our young spruce trees during a wind storm last week... its roots were on the edge of Penny's rock garden....petersmile
Frank L Croston.: There are lots of them Peter, they have great character. Sorry you lost one, always sad to lose a tree.
Lovely shot and nice treatment, Frank.
Frank L Croston.: Thank you very much Tom.
