Hi Geoff,
Very interesting and appealing image with this tree jumping out in the light!
Can you give us a bit more information on where and how you took this image?

Thanks Pierre, it was taken in the flinders Ranges about a 4 hour drive of Adelaide. Parachilna gorge is the name of the gorge. The rocks have been warn down over the past 550 million years and the backdrop to the picture consists of chocolate coloured shales. The light came from the side but not on the rocks letting the tree stand out.   Posted: 02/03/2024 15:44:38

Geoff- I love backlighted images like this tree, which really "pops" away from the darker background. The green, blue and red colors make a lovely backdrop, and I especially like the ray of light on the small branch coming up on the left of the tree. Really nice shot!

Hi Geoff. I agree and recognize the group comments here. The backlights, light fall to certain areas etc. The whole scene is sharp and colorful. Your post this month reminds me on what I learned lately. How to add an ethereal glow for calming landscape photos. This is so much personal taste though. I learned it from Mark Denney from this link.
