Lone tree
I've just has a week up in the Lake District and I had a leisurely drive up, taking two days to get there (I can't cope with the M6 is one go on a Friday!) I stopped overnight near Stafford and had an evening revisiting some old haunts from my days (as a student) at the BT Training School at Stone. This is near the Roaches, a wonderful rocky area just to the north of Leek. I'd taken most of my shots of the Roaches themselves but when I turned to walk back to the car I saw this opportunity.

Very nice too, I like the sunbeams breaking through the clouds, a nicely composed picture, very well done.
Lucky you thought to look back Alan, it could easily have been missed.

Well done for spotting this Alan and a gorgeous shot it is.
Simple but very effective and made all the more appealing by the sunbeams and clouds.
Luv it Alan, well done.
