One of the simplest images I have ever posted.

Sometimes a very simple image works well...the fewer details to distract ...leaves the focus drawn to the center of the picture. That was my purpose with this image. The lone tree on the top of the hill was visited by me many times in my youth. This is located near where I grew up and the run to the top was a favorite of mine. I had a gaming horse that loved that run as much as I did. The trip from about where this picture was taken to the top of the hill was 120 seconds of the most liberating freedom a young boy could experience. To be on top of the muscle and power of an animal that is bred for short bursts of speed is one of the most exhilerating feelings I have ever known.
