My only click of the day may or may not qualify depending on the breadth of your definition of ‘solitary’. Certainly, each of the trees in my doctor’s parking lot is the only one on its little island of grass and flowers.

An old tree alone in a field with a forest of trees behind it.

Great examples Bryan.
It would be interesting to know the history of the tree in #2.
Who planted it?
Who sat under it?
Did kids climb on it?

Thank you for sharing
Klaus

It may be a small spot of green Bob, but the tree looks really good.

I like it

Indeed, a tale or two to tell perhaps.

It stands in the former grounds of Catton Hall, a large country mansion built c1780, and landscaped by Humphry Repton in 1788. The bulk of the grounds were sold off in 1948 to form Catton Park, an approximately 70 acre public space.

Whether the tree was part of the original landscaping, making it some 230 years old, I've no idea.

Barely hanging on to life, this tree may be alone for a reason:

Neither alone, nor a tree, but this daisy definitely has aspirations...

There's nothing special about this photograph, but a lone tree in a pot is pretty interesting...

Here's a few from Friday. The first 2 are in a 1:1 format in solidarity with CS #605---I was down in Boise helping my daughter with her new house and forgot to take my camera :eek::mad::banghead:
1. A young Willow that has taken root amongst some resting farm equipment. Contrary to popular belief, the Palouse was never forested, rather it was a tall-grass prairie with trees limited to water courses and north sides of hills where soil and temperatures allowed trees to grow.

2. On the Eastern fringe of the Palouse. Land that has been taken out of production and reseeded with native grasses and forbs will eventually support Ponderosa Pines. Here's one breaking out on its own!

3. I saw this from a long way off and was impressed with its isolation and shadow. When I got close enough for a shot I discovered, to my chagrin, it was two Ponderosa Pines in a lentil field that had grown up and matured together.

Those are nice examples, Nick. Lone trees in a field like those are very rare in our part of the world.
