Night ash

I’ve been making an effort to conciously appreciate ash trees recently – given the threat of Ash Dieback, there is a significant risk that this ubiquitous feature of the British countryside may go the way of the elms and that would be a real tragedy.

This specimen might not be the biggest or most impressive of trees, but I think the shape and presence is immediately recognisable as the distinctive ash tree, brooding and contrary with a skeletal elegence as it rises above the hedgerow.

This shot is lit like a sunset, but is in fact a long exposure, highlighted behind by a partially cloud-covered moon with light-pollution providing the orange glow.
