Now this is my kind of shot! LOVE the long crop, an amazing Mesquite, here in Texas, with plently of water, they rarely EVERY grow half this size! There is nothing like barbeque cooked with mesquite! This is a great shot, love the illuminated cloud behind it!

I'm quite stunned. The lighting certainly gives this tree the appearance of an inner glow and shouts life. It is nice that nature can still perplex us. Clearly the tree is tapping water from somewhere.
You've done well in holding still the image looks incredibly sharp. I like the use of panorama format to match the tree's proportions.
(I saw a similar huge tree in a desert, it was supposed that the when the tree was a sapling water was abundant, and as the water receded it was able to grow roots to keep up. Hence no new saplings could successfully establish themselves. I wonder if the same applies here).
What a surprising and interesting post. I like the simple POV and composition . Your post processing work, burning enhanced the aura around this mysthic tree.
I just wonder if it would not be better to take away the platform next to the tree for a better natural look.
