Chimney & ash

I like driving down country lanes and discovering new long-cuts. A couple of weekends ago on one of my trail-blazing runs I happened upon a new view of a chimney I have passed hundreds of times. Instead of some old stack at a boring, old paper mill seen from the main road in the valley bottom, it was suddenly a weird, brick obelisk all shrouded in trees seen viewed from across the valley. I was impressed to return the next day with my camera. The trees in the background are part of Wharncliffe Woods but the trees in the foreground are a single row at the bottom of a field; in between is the valley bottom with the main road, the paper mill, and the River Don.

This nice ash (Fraxinus excelsior) stood close to where I took chimney pic. I couldn’t resist a few shots of the crown!
