Brimham Rocks’ Stubborn Tree

Stubborn tree at Brimham rocks

Brimham rocks is an area of assorted oddly-shaped balancing rocks, made of millstone grit, in the Nidderdale region of North Yorkshire. Many have their own names, like Dancing Bear, and Idol Rock. This infamous tree has successfully grown on one of them.
Photographically, this scene has been done to death, but photographers have this habit of wanting their own version anyway, and this is mine.
I would offer the photograph for sale, as a print or a download, except that the land’s managers, the National Trust, won’t allow it. It seems that they want to retain any intellectual property on the site. Fair enough, I suppose, but it makes you wonder who they are looking after these properties for.
