photoblog image Tree Stump

Tree Stump

I came across this tree stump behind a drystone wall on the farm we rented a cottage at in the Peak District last autumn. It looks as though it had been cut down with the wall in situ and I liked all the Ivy starting to cover it, plus of course the low evening sunlight from behind me.

I can easily see why this scene grabbed your attention, Brian.
Brian Walbey: I like finding little cameos like this to photograph.

Jolie photo mais je n'aime pas que l'on coupe les arbres.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Martine, it could be that the tree was in a dangerous state and needed to be cut down, being on a farm it could have fallen on the herd of cattle nearby.

I expect it will stay there for years too
Brian Walbey: No doubt it will rot away slowly.
A lovely capture in this light Brian!
Brian Walbey: Thanks Richard, I enjoy this sort of shot.

Very pleasing, too.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Alan, I enjoy this sort of shot.
I am sure that Ivy will wrap it in her tender green blanket and keep Stumpy warm for years. I love the shot.
Brian Walbey: Thanks Mary. I guess nature will take its course and it will slowly rot away.
It was probably threatening to push the wall over!
Brian Walbey: Very likely Tom.

The nature seems to conquer this tree stump. I like this image.
Brian Walbey: Ivy manages to grow just about anywhere.
it is a great stump... nicely decorated with the vegetation Brian....petersmile
Brian Walbey: I thought it made for a reasonable little picture.
