photoblog image Lonesome Tree

Lonesome Tree

This was taken during our North Devon holiday in 2007 when we spent almost a day at this beautiful little bay, called Lee Bay, not very far from Ilfracombe.

Being a fan of lonesome tree shots I took several of this one with different foregrounds but felt that this is the perhaps the most interesting one.

This little coastal village is well worth a vist with some great walks along the beach and under the cliffs subject to the state of the tide.

The villege website and a selection of pictures can be found at http://www.leebay.co.uk/index.htm

I'm partial to lone trees like that, too, Brian. I bet it has a name!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ginnie, I don't know what type of tree this is but it was a lovely quiet little bay at which to spend the day.

Beautiful image Brian. The tree contrasrs nicely with the white cliffs.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Aussie, my canera club friends reckon there is too much foreground but I like it as it is.

My kids love climbing the rocks when we are on holiday.
Nice shot Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tracy, my kids used to like climbing as well. My grandson would love it here.
Magnificent example of geological formation, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Yes Chad it is quite interesting geologically and a very nice place to spend some time.
A delightful composition Brian: I love this part of the world
Brian Walbey: This place wouldn't be too long a drive from you I would imagine Chris. Thanks for your comment.

Amazing how trees cling to life in the most inhospitable of situations. A pleasing composition Brian.
Ingrid
Brian Walbey: Thanks Ingrid, it is when you see trees on their own on a bare mountainside I find it quite amazing.
That must be a tough tree. I expect it gets a bit rough there in the winter. Nice shot and thanks for the web site. Lee looks like a lovely little place.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Janet, not too far off the M5 if you ever pass that way, and a nice little place to spend some time. There seems to be a bit of a lean to the tree so perhaps it does get windy in the winter.
A wonderful capture Brian. I love the lonely tree!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I think I've said before i am a bit of a sucker for lone tree pictures.

There's a real freshness to the way the cliffs appear, bright and as though a giant spade has just chipped a pathway. A gorgeous scenic shot, full of natures simple beauty.

Fabulous smile
Brian Walbey: Thanks Paul, I like the way the sea and weather have eroded this rocky outcrop.

As a geologist, I love this!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Travis, I can't profess to know much about these rocks, it is a long time since I left school although they, and the other formations in the bay are quite spectacular.

I am also a fan of lonesome trees, and have quite a selection ;o) Lovely companion to the white rocks and cliffs. Our coastline is so varied.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mike, this is a lovely little bay to spend some time, on a nice day of course.

Very attractive too, Brian. I like the strata in the rock and the windswept tree makes a fine topping.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, there is probably a good chance of some fine close-up shots among this rocky outcrop as well.
Nicely spotted - excellent shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Jim, regular viewers will know I like lonesome tree shots.
