I really like that tree, and it's cool with the car driving along on the road. I feel like the shot's very well balanced for that, and it really makes me love it. It's just cool and varied all around <3
The car I was trying to avoid but when I thought of cropping it, along with the road, the balance of the composition and the interest was lost. So having decided to leave it, the title came to mind. The rest was history as they say - thanks for the kind comments.
The frustrating thing was I drove by an hour before with NO CAMERA, the sun was highlighting the tree beautifully and the background was merging into a thick fog. A totally different and much better photograph, unfortunately missed! Lesson:- TAKE CAMERA EVERYWHERE!
