Sunlit Tree

There’s that moment in an Autumn day when the sun is low but intensely bright. For a brief few minutes it lights everything with a lovely orange glow and as you stumble headlong towards it you are reminded, a little, of summer. Then it drops behind the tree line, all the saturation disappears, and you realise that it’s nearly winter and you’d better get home before it’s dark as the canal is a bit creepy then.

I spent far too long taking pictures of this tree so it did become dark, and the canal is creepy. In the background are people playing football. They didn’t seem to care about the sun, the canal, or this tree. A few of them may have wondered about the odd guy lurking behind a tree with a camera, however.
