'Scene' in Dorset - Hurn Court 2/4

This "longish" series comprises a variety of subjects and shots I took during our April visit to Dorset for our nephews wedding.

There is a fine collection of trees scattered around the grounds of the 11 acres of the Hurn Court Estate and this is one that particularly caught my eye.

A beautiful specimen, Brian.
Brian Walbey: There are some lovely trees right through the estate Ray.
Now that's what I call a tree! I wonder how old it is.
Brian Walbey: I never thought to look and see if there was a plaque or anything Sheila.

Needed the seat to give it scale Brian, it is a magnificent old specimen
Brian Walbey: I'll own up to not even noticing the seat till you said Tony, silly me.
What a beautiful and impressive specimen!
Brian Walbey: It is a lovely one I agree Richard.

Good looking tree what brand is it?
Brian Walbey: I don't know what brand it is vintage or indeed which species either grin
Hi Brian,this looks like a nice place to sit and ponder the day away don't you think the trees are so tall as well.
Brian Walbey: It would be a nice place to sit Cheryl, this was one of several very tall trees.
Its a very grand tree and they always look good. I wonder just how tall it is smile
Brian Walbey: I couldn't even begin to guess its height Linda.

That one thing we do well in the New Forest and the surrounding area - trees! This is a fine example and is nicely captured.
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Alan.
Lovely detail on the tree, the contrast levels are perfect! Too bad the sky is a bit dull. The tree is one I would have my eye on too!!!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Marion. It was one of those evenings when the light was very strong and the contrast was high. I could have tried HDR I suppose but I hadn't got my tripod for the multiple exposures and anyway, we were supposed to be on a walk not a photographic adventure and Maureen was being very patient with me.
Great tree in all respects, is it a Redwood?
Brian Walbey: I think it probably is a Redwood John but I'm not much of an expert on trees.
Of all things growing..trees are really beautiful..This is lovely Brian.
Brian Walbey: I love trees at this time of the year Ron, I was photographing some yesterday, you might see them later on this year.

Oh yes, a giant of an exotic tree- and it seems to be very old, but still in a good, proper state! I like the bench, too- did you take a close-up of it?
My congratualtions to your success as photographer!
Brian Walbey: Thanks for the congrats.Philine, I didn't take the bench because, to be honest, I never noticed it until Tony (zed) pointed it out.
Fine tree, Brian.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Tom.
Big aint it ... ;-) richard
Brian Walbey: It jolly well is Richard, fancy climbing that to keep it pruned.
what a wonderful tree, and well captured
Brian Walbey: Many thanks Derek.
