Quite right John: it could stay there for years. I like the colouration of the thing too
John Prior: Thanks Chris, yes it's been like this for a long time now.
Beautiful tree, and I bet the camera sees it differently every time to shoot it.
John Prior: Thank you Shelia, yes I find it very difficult to be pleased with the results.
Great title for this dramatic image. Love the colour and tones.(:o)
John Prior: Thanks Rosalyn, trees like this seem to develop real character.

Great work in grey and blue. I really appreciate this colorization!

Oh, this appears to be out of this world. WOW.
John Prior: Thanks BK.
Gorgeous, absolutely gorgeous.

Did you desaturate the colour to get the wonderfully, almost silky, grey and the slightly dull sky?
John Prior: Thanks EJ, I played with it in Lightroom.
