The Weekend in Black and White / A Lonely Tree Along-Side the Sugar Cane, Maui, Hawaii USA

Click on photo to enlarge!
This tree stands along-side the sugar cane fields beneath the West Maui Mountains.
It was late afternoon as the sun rays peaked through the openings of clouds to produce some dramatic light.

I think that the shapes of the tree and clouds in addition to a good composition have made them very artistic. I like both pictures in black and white.
