260s in the life of a favoured characterful old tree outside Muthill, Perthshire.

I've made photos of this tree several times before - including the first day I encountered it, when it had another large bough still attached on the far side, although that's long-since fallen off now - but this time, I had a particular mission in mind, to make a long exposure showing the clouds flowing past while the tree stands the ravages of time.

Fuji X-H2, 16-55mm lens, K&F circular polariser and ND1000 filters.
13s * 20 with pixel-shift for a total integration of 260s = 4.33 minutes.
