It's such a dramatic curve in the hill, it's almost as though some giant took a bite out of the land with an ice cream scoop!

They would be great for rolling down.......not that I do that sort of thing of course...... (Not in public, anyway :)

Cheers, Sue

kat: Lone trees are great subjects for dramatic photos.

Sue: Rolling down that hill would give great excitement. To give it scale - The tree is about 50ft high, and if you look at the photo full size you will see some people standing below it.

Thanks Billy. To be honest, there wasn't much that could go wrong with the composition at that spot. It needs better weather, though.

Goodness, Yes, Skida, I can see them now. I'm glad you said that as I thought the tree wasn't much more than a sapling, but it's a big tree!

That certainly gives a good sense of scale..

Great composition in a wonderful area. My missus spent a year at college in Hexham when she was studying for her Education degree. She (and I) spent the other three years in Ponteland, but Hexham was prettier!

Thanks Paul. We do have some good places here in Northumberland. You will be happy to hear The Blackbird was refurbished after a fire a couple of years ago.
