A Distant Tree

There across the field is a solitary tree.  It’s definitely maintaining its Social Distance.  Just as I am on my solitary – but not at all unhappy – walk.

Just like me though, the tree is not really alone.  There are trees to the right of it, trees to the left of it, and – zoom –  a forest of trees behind it.  Perhaps, like me, it’s happy enough with its lot.

And even though it’s distant, I can still get a shot of its topmost branches to send Becky a shot of this Top Tree.

I'm retired and living in North Yorkshire, where I walk as often as I can, write, volunteer, and travel as often as I can.

      1. Ahora bajan mucho a Barcelona ciudad, son una plaga y ya son bastantes sociables, cuando vuelva la normalidad no va a ser fácil que vuelvan a la montaña. Hay muchos accidentes en las carreteras que cruzan la montaña…

    1. I know! I gave myself a project of taking the same shot of the trees beyond my window, starting on the first day of spring, to observe the changes. They’re fairly distant trees, and so far, the changes such as they are. are way too subtle for the naked eye. Let’s see what another 19 days bring


  1. An excellent analogy in this one Margaret. We are all alone but not. Our friends and family are distant but not. There are ways to manage through this if we put our minds to it and focus on the little things that remain to make us smile. Good for you for finding beauty

    1. I know how lucky I am to be able to do so. I’m neither in cramped accommodation, or a crowded city, or unable to leave the house. So much to be thankful for.


  2. Lovely shots. Our winter trees (here in mid-Atlantic USA) are rapidly turning to spring trees–budding, beginning to leaf, and popping out pollen by the buckets-full. Is spring coming to Yorkshire yet?
