The Fallen Tree


This tree shattered, and fell towards the bridge. A couple of years ago there was a swing hanging from a main branch (children often play down by the River Leet here, leaving signs of their occupation, at the moment there are the ashes of a fire). I think the swinging with the weight of a child must have weakened the tree. From the broken branches leaves are still sprouting. Elsewhere, a chaos of tree. Somewhere I have a photograph of that swing, before the tree tumbled.

  1. What beautiful light you captured, especially on the branches of the fallen tree.

    • One of my favourite places to stand and sometimes photograph, but not in this month, as the nettles are high as my eyes! So pleased that you liked the photograph.
