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.

Gosh that was fast work. Thanks a lot 🙂
Welcome. Glad you didn’t mind the reblog
Be inspired by night. That’s an interesting idea and one you have captured beautifully in your photo.
Glad you like it, Ann 🙂
How small that ash tree looks against the skyline. Your photo speaks of infinity far and beyond. Beautiful use of light, Tish. Thank you 🙂
Thank you, Paula.
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.
Very inspiring shot…!
Whenever I hear ‘Wenlock Edge’, Tish, I think of you 🙂 I dare say there are other occupants in Rip Van Winkle Land 🙂 🙂
Oh, one or two fellow nutcases here on the Edge 🙂
I would stop there too, it’s a very beautiful spot and offers great views of the changing skies!
The clouds are often very interesting at that point too. So many ways to stand and stare, Tiny 🙂
What a lovely view – and a great photo of it!
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 🙂
