Nightfall Over Wenlock Edge


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. How small that ash tree looks against the skyline. Your photo speaks of infinity far and beyond. Beautiful use of light, Tish. Thank you 🙂

      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.

  2. I love it when you have the opportunity to take photos of the same thing at different times throughout the year – the change can be really awesome. This is a great photo 🙂
