Ancient Tree

Taken right in front of the abbey Osio Lukas in the middle of nowhere in Greece, this image shows a pretty old and probably the biggest sycamore tree I've ever seen. The abbey itself is from the 10th century and that tree fits this place as no other tree would!

Post-processing is a straight b/w conversion with lots of local contrast pushing for giving better detail on the tree's trunk.
