Winter tree No2 – Somerset.
I cheated with this one, flipped it horizontally because I preferred the big tree on the left & the road curving in from the right.
Another winter tree.
It may still look rather cold, but it was not all fog & rain. In fact most of the day was very nice for the time of year.

Black Down hills Somerset No2.
Part of the village of Clapton in Gordano Somerset, on a rather cold and damp morning.
Black Down, the highest point in the Mendip Hills Somerset.
According to that well-known online Encyclopedia, which agrees with a book I have: the name Black Down comes from the Saxon word ‘Blac’ or ‘Bloec’ meaning bleak or dark and ‘Dun’ meaning down or fort. There are several Bronze Age round barrow earth covered burial tombs & a nearby Iron Age hill fort in the area.
