Misty Morning Tree

Sam was sick last night and did not go to school today, so Jan stayed at home with him and I dropped Ben off at school. I was already late, and the fog was thick so I took a small divert up to the woods to see if I could grab a few interesting shots on my way in.

When I got to the top of the hill It was disappointingly clear, but heading over towards the castle I was clearly the edge of the fog below and the clear blue skies above, but it drifted across and gave some interesting effects.

I was late and the fog was swiftly clearing so I took a few shots and headed off to work.
Very pretty!

This is spectacular! Outstanding capture of the light. Is this two trees or is it split down the middle?

Looks like the sun has split the tree in two - great shot!

Love this!

This is such a cool shot, looks like the tree is split in half. Following!

Stunning! Two trees or one? I love how it looks like one tree attacked by a flash of lightning :o) xx

Wow, thanks everyone. I am not sure if it is one tree or two. I will have to go back and have a closer look! I love the idea of the sun splitting the tree. I hadn't really thought about that - I just liked the way it cast the shadows. It is a shame I hadn't been there half an hour or so earlier to catch the sun coming over the tree line - it could have been interesting.

This is incredible .... really looks as though the light has cleaved the trunk in half
