  1. Now is it the tree with no leaves or the empty sports pitch (….because all activities have shut down until New Year)? Regardless I’m going to take a guess this was taken early in the morning.

    • It was actually at about 3.40pm and I was feeling miserable that it was already going dark! It was the trees I wanted to capture and wasn’t happy that the sports pitches were ruining my photo!

  2. What a nice tree. I think it would look better with twinkly lights and baubles though 🙂 #MySundayPhoto

    • I think you’re right! I took it because it all looked so bleak and wintry.

  3. Lovely shot Sarah, at first I thought it was your Parkrun course. As it looks like ours. I hate the dark evenings as the kids love to run after school and it is always a mad rush to get changed and out before the darkness arrives. Not long now until we are heading back to Summer 🙂

  4. That’s a sign of Winter, empty trees and empty fields.

    Have a very Merry Christmas.

  5. I am hating how it gets dark so early. My kids like to burn off some energy after our evening meal but it’s way too dark for them to go out then. I think trees are amazing, look how bleak and dead this tree looks without it’s leaves, it’s hard to believe that in a few months time it will start springing into life again.
    Merry Christmas to you and your family xx

    • I can’t wait for the trees to start springing into life again! There is something beautiful about bare trees, but they are pretty bleak 🙁

    • Isn’t it just? I was feeling miserable about the dark and cold and this seemed to sum it up perfectly.

  8. Great photo, I like the contrast of the striking tree against the grey sky. Also, you can still see the red around the base of the tree from the autumn leaves, fabulous.
