A perennial favourite in landscape photography, the single tree on its own can lend scale to the vastness of the landscape around it, or convey a sense of bleakness and isolation. In this challenge, show us your favourite tree and how it fits into it's surroundings.

Image shot on our way to hike the Naukluft. Dead Vlei is surrounded by the highest sand dunes in the world, some reaching up to 300 meters. The clay pan was formed after rainfall, when the Tsauchab river flooded, creating temporary shallow pools where the abundance of water allowed camel thorn trees to grow. When the climate changed, drought hit the area, and sand dunes encroached on the pan, which blocked the river from the area. The trees died, as there no longer was enough water to survive.
