Hanging on..


This lone tree on a ridge above Dowley Gap, silhouetted against the sky, has often caught my eye.  It has a rather pleasing shape and seems to be hanging on to its leaves, when all around are losing theirs.  (A touch of Rudyard Kipling here, perhaps!)

  5. A great silhouette of a traditionally shaped tree. It is perfect and I doubt you'll get a cyclone to blow it down.

  6. I like the trees that hang on longest. They help to make winter seem that tiny bit shorter :)
