Hi,

Just a little bright summery shot from my trip to Mallorca earlier in the year to brighten up the dark cold winter!

Not sure of many details, it's in the Puig region of the Tramuntana mountains - I remember being drawn to the simple duplication of the mountain profile by the tree and rock whilst out walking - but now I just like the blue sky and remembering how warm it was!! :-)

Thanks for looking.

ps just minor saturation and contrast tweaks PP...

Hi Doug,
The great memories of the sunny summer season. I think we all are longing to those days.
I like the centered composition and the single tree growing in this rocky environment. The great thing is that the sun has created the fine edge just above the tree, illuminating only the top half of the mountian. The texture in the rock in the FG are great, and the exposure spot on.
TFS,
Niek

Hi Doug,
great to see another shot from you my friend, hope you're doing ok and if i don't speak to you before - happy xmas!
Anyway, pleasantries over with! I can see what drew your eye here, the tree does seem to mimic the profile of that great looking peak in the background, well seen. I really like the depth created by the layers of rock and the detail is very good too. A nice sight to see on a quite a nippy day, cheers!

Good composition, Doug.
Beautiful nature vista.

Hi Doug,
Very interesting image!
I like the symmetry found here, and built with the tree and top of the mountain.
Good POV and nice blue sky to complement the composition.
Congratulations and thanks fo share it.
My best regards,

Hi Doug

This really is a very beautiful reminder of summer!
The colors of this landscape really do lead the viewer into a warm, sub-tropical area and make him/her feel eager for the upcoming season :)
I really like the contrast here between the leaves of this lonely tree and the rocks around it. The result is lovely and really brings the extra attention it needs.
Vert nice simple composition, with great inclusion of that superb blue sky, too. Nice work!

Bravo and TFS
Horia
