    This one has an interesting story. I had pre-scouted a spot in the lavender fields of Southern France the day before. We got up at 4:00 AM to get to the spot. I walked out through the lavender and began to set up my tripod. As I setup a bee stung me at the very corner of my eye. This seemed to set off the bees, and they were all coming after me, trying to sting me in my face. I got stung again at the corner of my eye, almost at the same spot as the first sting. There are millions of bees in the fields – when in the lavender two things are very apparent the smell of the lavender, and the loud noise/hum from the bees. The fields are almost vibrating from so many bees. 
     
    We decided to abandon the spot in the lavender field, and drove off down a dirt road. Coming around a corner the big tree caught my eye just as sunrise happened.

    Another classic Friedman tree shot.  Man, you do know how to take nice tree photos.  Love the lone tree concept.

    Thanks Kevin. The background on this image, really makes the shot. I guess I was fortunate to get the bee stings.

    Lovely work, Steven. And I especially like the use of “space”, here – in my opinion, it christens the composition.

    Thank you Lance. I agree the background makes the image.
