Nightfall Over Wenlock Edge

100_5021

This photo was taken from the field path in Townsend Meadow behind our house, a scene captured one day last winter when I was late home from the allotment. I often stop at this  point on the path to take photos. The ash tree silhouette always catches my eye, whatever the season, and I love the way the day seems to slip behind the hill as night shuts down on top and shadows creep up to meet it. It’s a bit like a stage set. Or it could be Rip Van Winkle Land.

      1. I forgot to say, I much appreciate your particular take on this photo – the idea of infinity. I hadn’t put that thought into words for myself, but it’s part of what I was feeling at the time.
