Solitary Oak, Lincolnshire, UK

This tree is a little bit like an old friend. It lies on the edge of a village that I lived in when I was young and where I took many photographs in my last years of childhood. In early 2010, twenty years after leaving this place, I returned one winter day to reprise those old photographs on digital equipment. I can see that the shape of the tree has changed subtly with a large branch on the southern (right) side of the tree now lost to wind, age, or lightning.
