Lone Coastal Live Oak Tree with Mount Woodson in the background. Ramona, CA USA
I cannot remember the film, but my best guess is Agfa ULTRA 100. The Shot was taken with the M7 using a 90mm Tele-Elmarit. Unfortunately, the scan loses much of the detail in the image, oh well.

Someday I'll invest in a good film scanner, but for now I prefer to spend the discretionaly money on film and processing
Oh, I should probaby mention that this particular tree is subject to the ravages of several herds of cows. Surprisingly, cows like to eat, or at least chew-on, oaks, and in this case they have greatly impacted the look of the tree. Before the cows came the tree was much fuller and the branches extended much lower toward.
Another view the the same tree can be found here:
I already suspected some damage on bottom of the tree. Interesting to hear about this oak species. I can definitely recommend a filmscanner, I have been using one for about 2 years now and the quality is very satisfying, even if it is not the top notch model.
