I take photos of this tree line more often than is necessary. It needs lots of zoom (the hill is on the other side of the town) but it’s a view I see when I’m up at the allotment. Or rather it’s a view I see when I’m leaving the allotment, and turn at the last moment to check what the light is doing over in the Callaughton quarter of Much Wenlock. This version was taken on the last day of November. The large tree is probably an ash, its undercarriage laden with ivy. I’m guessing the small tree is a hawthorn, similary clothed. It’s a feature of our trees around Wenlock Edge – their trunks and branches hung in ivy.

Such a beautiful view. The silhouette provides a mysterious feel.
Can almost imagine that tree getting up and walking!
I shall keep an eye on it!
That is a cracking shot, Miss T.
It’s wonderful in silhouette, Tish 🙂 🙂
Thank you, Jo.
Fabulous silhouette — looks rather Seussian.
Thanks, Su 🙂
A tree line worth a few images!
