Beautiful colours captured here Dave.
Didn't realise this tree figured so strongly in folklore, at least it will(apparently) keep the
witches away, lol.

Thanks, guys. This was really intended as a kind of technical post though I posted it in Botanical. I am still revelling in the excellent chemistry between the D800 and the 28mm f2, especially in this kind of small-scale subject. If you click for the enlarged view you'll see what I mean - the crop is of a tiny area near the centre of frame.

Tony - yes, it used to be people's habit in the Scottish Highlands to plant a rowan outside their door, for that very reason. We have four or five so I think we are safe! :D

Very nicely done Dave. Considering the holiday yesterday (at least in the U.S) I hope it did its intended job.
