    • I’m glad you find it calming. Sitting beneath this magnificent tree has absolutely that effect. Thank you so much for your nice comment!

  2. The tiny bench underneath the tree gives the viewer some real perspective on just how huge that tree is. The fog creates a comfortable kind of feeling here. This is nice, Lemony.

    • This tree is huge. It’s wonderful to sit beneath it. It’s a solitary tree, though, with no other trees around it… just fields and fields.

  3. Beautiful, Melanie…rising sun in a foggy morning? Wonderful atmosphere…a great place to be alone…or with a chosen One….

    • Yes I took this in the early morning. And it is a wonderful place to be when seeking some quiet.

      • I can imagine that it is, Melanie…

  4. This must be the one what people call “Majestic Tree” who has been watching hundreds of years of human life.
    —– And there must be a lots of history there, while all other trees has been cut down etc not mention how
    many times the tree has been hit by lightnings. I wonder, when people sitting under this huge tree, what this
    tree inspires the people —– feel great ? or, utter humbleness ?
    So, this is the wise-man’s photo which is questioning you. Great photo, Lemony. !

    • Yes, this is the only tree in this area of the fields. It’s hundreds of years old, and magnificent sight to behold. It is humbling to sit beneath it (for me at least). I like to imagine all that it has seen and weathered. It is a wonderful place to go and be quiet.

  6. Love this shot……..big old trees with space to sit below and feel the vibes of those who have sat in the same spot – absorbing the same through the years. I always wonder what all those old trees have witnessed in their time on earth. Puts my own life experience into perspective.

    • Thank you, Pam, for these wonderful words about the awe-inspiring presence of old trees. I share your view entirely. 🙂

  7. Excellent. The bench makes me wonder what the view from it must look like. If someone went to all the trouble of putting it there, there must be something worth seeing. i wish I could sit there for awhile and find out.

    • Thank you. I’m glad the image makes you wonder about the view. This solitary tree sits amid fields and fields of corn, and there is a road that cuts through the fields. If you sat on the bench, you would be looking into a very large cornfield. It’s a nice place to sit and gather one’s thoughts.

  8. Love this image: The size of the tree emphasized by the bench. The foggy toning adding to the calming mood.

  10. Love the tones in this shot. It’s got the delicacy of a watercolour. And the tree is magnificent.

    • Thank you, Richard. The light was shifting in such interesting ways, as the sun was trying to penetrate the fog. I pass by this tree once per week. It’s amazing to watch it transform throughout the seasons.

  11. Like a dreamland… Beautiful. So beautiful. Thank you dear Melanie, love, nia

    October 28, 2012 at 8:03 am

    • I’m so happy you like it, nia! Thank you for your nice words. It is such a peaceful place in this image, so different from the raging winds and rains we’re experiencing now….

  12. I agree with the rest of the people’s comments. Such a relaxing image. There is something truly magical about these big old trees. The things they’ve seen and the stories they could tell.
