I thought of this one in considering composition with simplicity in the backgound.
Lighting was late day side light with lots of shadows for drama.

After shooting back to back weddings this weekend and a family shoot in a couple of hours, I sat here exhausted... opened up your picture... and could completely feel the smile coming across my face! Thanks for the peaceful, beautiful image.

Just Beautiful! Looks like a nice strong tree...This reminds me of a Bible verse I just read...They are strong, like a tree planted by a river. Psalms 1:3
