OAK TREE

OAK TREE IN THE VALE OF PEWSEY
An Oak Tree in the Vale of Pewsey. You can see one of Wiltshire's White Horses on the hill left of the tree.
The embankment of the main railway line from Paddington through to Westbury, cuts across the landscape and every now and then a blue coloured express passes by, but too swiftly to  try to paint in. On te RH is  the clump of trees on Wooborough hill, a familiar landmark in the area.
NB Just went to see this tree  again with a view to painting it again, almost a year later - I was a bit shocked to see that they were bulldozing a large shallow depression  next to it, so a big pile of mud and bare earth looking a bit messy.  Hope they know what they are doing. Possibly they are making a lake,
