Lovely shot. Everything in this image speaks lines and lead they do. One's eyes cannot but follow through the image and out, and back to it's starting point. It meets the challenge requirements. Compositionally it works.

Shooting from the bottom up like this also adds to this image and rarely this does not have an impact.

Exposure handled well. Difficult light and not always possible to deal with all the range of light to dark in this type of light. Another time of day or more cloud cover that could have served as a diffuser. Yet having said that, the effect of the light on the tree and this contrasted with the black of the branches spreading out works well, further emphasising the lines at to
p. Light everything up with the same exposure and this becomes a bland shot

Would be interesting to see this n B+W as I have a feeling this has potential.

Yes, this is not the most exciting subject and has little wow when you compare this to classic landscapes and various other elements used in shots to get lines, but it works well. Fresh image compared to most other images in this challenge. Processing kept simple and straight forward helps to keep this to photography and less of an image that could be used in a Harry potter movie.
