When I was in England, November of 2006, my friends took me for drives along a lot of back country roads. It was wonderful to see off-the-beaten-track views and the "real" England. On the way to one village, John stopped to consult his map and as he checked it over, I snapped this shot of a solitary tree. I liked how it looked so stark against the cool autumn sky and that there was just a touch of blue peeking through. I played with the original photo and decided to solarize it - I like how it looks not too far from the original but just has some subtle differences. Click to enlarge.
