Lovely shot, but a very lonely tree!
And, as ever, I enjoyed the accompanying music
🙂 Cheers Debbie

I like your tree though it stands alone. Here’s mine this week Paula. Liked your music too
Thank you kindly DM, and for your nice entry too. Have a good week!
A lonely tree is a very sad thing. It poses questions about what the landscape was once like. Photographically, of course, it’s a beauty. Patterns, textures and layers and dead centre, the tree.
I see it as something optimistic 🙂 Thank you, Meg.
I’ll recalibrate my thinking! I’d just been reading about plans to attack the ancient forest on the border between Belarus and Poland, so my view was jaundiced.
That would be awful 😦

That lone tree is me.
And I thought that it was me. 🙂
Special it is! Happy Sunday Paula xxx
Happy Monday, Jo 🙂
Love your One lonely tree, Paula!
I’m very glad that you do. Thank you, Sue.
Gorgeous capture , Paula!
In Italia 🙂
There is something special with trees standing alone.
When I look through my photos – I see that this topic “One” fits well on many of them.
Here is one (hehe) of them: http://wp.me/p3gqMf-pB
A charming take on the theme. Thank you for joining in.
Yes, I’m for lone trees too. What’s interesting about this one is it may be alone, but it’s certainly standing up for itself on that hillside. Can’t keep a good tree down. Happy Sunday, Paula.
You managed to come up with something intriguing as usual. I appreciate it, Tish. Have a good week!
First, I love your entry for this challenge. The lone tree surrounded by endless rolling hills evoked this thought ‘When I feel alone, I need only to look around to see the beauty that surrounds me and know that the possibilities are endless.’ Perhaps a bit corny, but that was what came to me.
Second, I am honored that you invited me to guest host on your blog. I had so much fun with creating the post and enjoyed our correspondence during the publishing process. I look forward to interacting with each of your readers from my tomorrow morning (The Captain is ringing the dinner bell now).
And last, but not least, I am delighted to have been able to make you laugh and smile.
I want nothing more than all that you have wished for me. Thank you
Thank you, Lisa.
Love the patterns and texture
Superb and sweet. Easily transported through your photographs…
🙂 Thank you, sweetie.
Reminds me of the words of the song, “All Alone Am I Ever Since Your Goodbye!” A lovely photo of one, Paula, and great music! I know I haven’t gone completely B&W but I do hope you’ll excuse it this time! https://livingwithmyancestors.wordpress.com/2016/04/17/sunday-selfies-blog-hop-88-and-black-and-white-sunday-one/
I like it 🙂 Thank you.
That is quite the impressive image, Paula!
I’m very glad you like it Tobias. Thank you.

There is something intrinsically appealing about a solitary tree in the landscape. Love the lines and the patterns in this.
I’m very pleased that you like it Jude. Have a great week!

A little something to wrap up this Sunday … Thanks, Paula!
I enjoyed your entry a lot, Marilyn. A silhouette on a slope. Perfect!
Such a solitude. Peaceful or lonely now that is the question.
In any case I see it as a tough one, aware of its roots. A fighter 🙂
One, yes I should probably have some stuff I can use for this challenge. I wonder why they left that lonely tree there…
It did not want to go 😀

I like how you’ve carefully composed the image, Paula. The slopes running diagonally across the frame render a sense of motion, adding that bit of energy to the picture. Simple, yet powerful.
Thank you 🙂

A lovely theme and your response for it is equally fascinating! Love the way the tree is balancing itself 🙂
Here’s my response for the theme:
Oh, thank you, Srivi. It’s an intriguing shot.
One. And only. Très bien. Et merci pour la musique. Reposante. Ça fait du bien.
Tudo bom com Vc?
Pas tres bien mais ca ira. Trop de stress, sante pas bonne etc. Je prendrai un petit break de 27 avril jusqu’a 4 mai.
Super! Plus qu’une semaine à attendre. Très content pour toi. Ça t’enlèvera un peu de stress. Bjo Paulinha. Ánimo!
I love trees. Alone or together, ideally a forest. Trees are alive and a great way to recharge as humans is to spend time under and with one (or more) trees.
Something haunting about that solitary tree especially paired with the music Paula. Beautiful image.
What a steadfast little tree and a wonderful shot!
