An ancient windswept hawthorn tree.

I was trying a technique on this image using a long exposure, where the movement of the leaves and branches can be seen as blurred motion against the crisp foreground and sky. Unfortunately it was so windy up here, almost everything in the scene was moving! Click image to view larger.

the black and white version looks almost infrared! amazing. is this the same photo with the colour removed? or did you take two shots? beautiful as always!

The black and white version is very emotive. I think the experiment and your post-production work created a very holgaish feel to the photograph.

I like the black and white one better.
Love the framing.
I'm wondering what a wider angle could have done to the shot.
