Last week I visited a number of sites along Hadrian’s Wall, Walltown Crags being a particular favourite. Pretty much had the place to myself, meeting only one other person out in the landscape.
Looking very much like Ents from Lord of the Rings, the trees in the photo below have a fluidity and motion about them, in my mind they almost seem to be dancing with one another.
The last two photographs are located on the drive out from Carlisle. There’s a lay-by opposite with a short walk up to the copse. Surprisingly, no one had paid these trees a visit, my footprints being the only ones left in the snow.
