This lone tree was uploaded to our Face­book page. It was taken by pho­tog­ra­pher Andy McDon­ald.

He tells us, ‘My 2018 pho­tog­ra­phy project is on lone trees, so I was ex­cited about vis­it­ing the York­shire moors to see what I could find. I saw this tree as I walked from Top Withens [a ru­ined farm­house near Ha­worth, West York­shire] to­wards Stan­bury. I got down low to frame the tree against the sky with the path lead­ing in. The tree lean­ing to the right was a bonus! I used man­ual ex­po­sure to re­tain de­tail in the clouds, know­ing I’d lift shad­ows be­fore con­vert­ing us­ing Sil­verEfex Pro.’
