Well, thank you, Janine! I thought that solitary cottonwood "looked" lonesome in the snow like that. ;-)

Thank you Dominick. I tweaked the saturation and hue just a bit, but this is pretty much "right out of the camera."

Thank you Irina! Sometimes I just like to take an "okay" shot and use it to "experiment" with---to see where it takes me.

Thank you Wes! And WELCOME to the BP community! I was driving a friend back to town when I pulled off onto the narrow shoulder of the highway, to take this photo. It was the tree that initially drew my attention; I hadn't even "seen" the fence until I uploaded the photo onto my computer! Thanks again!

Well, thank you Jo Ann! I keep waiting for BP to award me a premium gallery, so I CAN show more than 30 at a time. ;-) I almost didn't post this photo, but apparently it has a visual appeal for many people. Thanks again, Jo Ann!

Thanks for stopping by, Michael, and thanks for your comment! This image is not one of my all-time personal favorites---because of the sense of isolation---but, apparently it speaks to a lot of other people. thanks again

Perfect Title. Makes me want to go out and but the cottonwood a little pal and plant it next to him. Even the fence and land look lonely. Great mood invoker.

Hi, Laura....welcome aboard...and thank you! Although I am not a "tree-hugger" per se....this cottonwood looked like it COULD use a "hug." ;-) thanks again for stopping by~!

Yes, this image "speaks" to me as well! Beautiful comp and contrasts.
Before it got to be so busy I loved driving Indiana St. and gazing out at the arsenal lands and the deer with the foothills in the background. I'm glad it's still open and inspiring though, and we still drive that route but usually can't take our time like we used to before all the traffic!

Thank you for your great comments, Joni! I took this shot on Hwy 93, not too far from the old arsenal entrance. In certain scenic areas, I think they should have "photographer-only" lanes on the highways and main roadways! ;-) Thanks again for stopping by and commenting!

Yea..."Pray for me, I drive Hiway 93!" Still some great vistas if you can hang out the window of the car and shoot as you pass by!
