The view up the hill from in front of my house
Across the playing fields, viewed from the community centre
The balance pond on the other side of the ‘village’
The shadows under the trees on the far side of the pond were deep and dense. I really like the bulrushes around the edge of the pond. I didn’t realise, but just out of sight behind the left hand tree of this sketch was a heron poking about in the shallows.
Tree tunnel behind the balance pond
I have always loved tree-tunnels, especially when bright sunshine dapples the ground underneath. The trunks of these trees appeared starkly black against the vibrant sunlit foliage. I’d like to explore that contrast.
