'The Major Oak' is a huge old English oak tree in the heart of Sherwood Forest, Nottinghamshire, England. According to local folklore, it was Robin Hood's shelter where he and his men slept. It weighs an estimated 23 tons, has a girth of 33 feet (10 metres), and is approximately 800 to 1,000 years old. In a 2002 survey, it was voted “Britain’s favourite tree”. It's limbs have been supported by props and scaffolding since the Victorian times.

Well, it's so hard to manage the wind in the leafs, very well done. The sky is nicely dramatic.
