No, I'm not painting it. I haven't even had the opportunity to do any more work on the other one for over three weeks. It would need some serious cropping to make the dead tree the dominant feature (left of the clump of trees, midway between the fence posts on the right and through the small patch of blue in the dominant cloud band). Anyway, there is no colour in the sky from sunset/rise.
That would be great, here in the outer suburbs open land and trees with character are well over half an hours drive away. There used to be trees all around us but someone decided all the trees, koalas, roos etc had to be replaced with wall to wall houses, houses were better for the economy. Escaping from Brisbane is becoming my no1 goal, I prefer peace and quiet to drunken parties with music at rock concert volume every weekend and being surrounded with roadworks makes going anywhere difficult - just driving to Ipswich (20Km)can take nearly an hour.
