New Year's Day Trees

Dowson Road from the green space at the top of Gower Road.

At the Shell filling station, behind the tall birch tree, petrol is a penny a litre dearer than it was on Christmas Day. although diesel is the same price.

The lock-up garages on the left are shielded by fast growing leylandii. There are actually three trees in a line, but from this angle they seem to merge into one.

For Skywatch Friday.


  1. Beautiful picture! Seems the weather is like here in Germany.

  2. Very beautiful photo!Happy New Year 2013!

  3. Love the contrast of the evergreen and the two bare-branched trees. Lovely spot. (I like bare trees, they look so graceful against the sky.)

  4. Wonderful winter skies, Gerald! I, too, love the contrast in the bare trees and the evergreen! Hope you had a great holiday and have a wonderful new year!

  5. Beautiful sky and trees. Bare trees always look dramatic :)

  6. the withered and the full foliage side by side
