The Lone Tree

The Lone Tree

The Coromandel Peninsula is located a short two hours away from Auckland, making it ideal for a long day trip. I've done such day trips several times, with each instance providing different scenes given the changing weather and seasons. One of my favorite spots is a small pass along the west coast of the peninsula, which conveniently has a viewing area. The hills roll gently down towards a small bay, and can then be seen rolling back up towards the horizon in the distance. The grass is usually a golden color, and moves in waves as the wind blows in from either the water or down from the mountains. It's the lone tree here that makes the scene, and continues to capture my attention.I don't know how old the tree is, but it has survived many seasons and storms. I shot this image in color, but decided I liked it much better in black and white, with a sepia toning. Mamiya 7ii, 65mm Wide Angle lens, Fuji Provia 100F.
