Windswept

I have posted a shot before (Photographers Assistant) of a wedge shaped tree from Warbstow Bury, which is somewhere I take the dog for a walk at least three or four times a week. In the comments someone mentioned that the tree looked like it was being blown by the wind. Up here, and in many of the exposed locations of Cornwall on the hills and clifftops, the trees end up being permanently this shape, reflecting the losing battle of constantly being thwarted against growing naturally upright by the prevailing winds.

This is one of the rare occasions when a blank blue sky was actually helpful in a black and white landscape photograph by letting the subject stand out.
