Not sure its a plane, Mal.

Looks more like the tree's laser-signalling device...the tree is not alone!

I'm glad you didn't leave on that jet plane, Mal. Otherwise we wouldn't have the pleasure now to look at this exposed and ramified beauty.
Super image, Mal! I love the stark detail of the silhouetted tree, set alongside the muted detail of the trees aned hills to the right. Perfect mono, as always. (:o)

This is a beauty, Mal, I guess it will not be a surprise for you if I tell you how much I love this image, it remembers me an image very close to my heart, my 'curtain', well, yours is for sure more beautiful but both share the same simplicity and motif, things very important for me. Wish you an awesome Sunday!
Beautiful. Haunting.
What are the chances of commenting right after someone with the same lastname?

Exceptionally simple and atmospheric picture, Mal. The laser signal is the dot over the 'i' as we say in Denmark.

such a compelling mood to this. love lone trees like this.
I didn't go through all your photos - yet...
absolutely wonderful tones and contrast, and great composition
Back to have another look. Just awesome, mal! This could be a very popular stock image ...

Yes, I see the lonely tree elevating its wings, as if it were suddenly captured by a longing to leave the earth and to escape into the air as it sees a plane like a bird shooting into the image- the straight diagonal line - in correspondence with other lines - is wonderful!
(Mal, you seem to be now in a very good, great phase as photographer!)
The title was pretty confusing..had to wonder for few sec why you named it like that, and then relaized the thin line...ha ha ha..
