A few days on the Norfolk Coast

cromholA few weeks ago, we stayed with family on the Norfolk Coast, the site is cromhol1surrounded by woodland owned by the National Trust, after a four and half hour drive we were keen to stretch our legs and explore the woods. These two images are of the same oak tree, one the camera compensated for the darkening conditions, the second I used flash. There is a wooden cross at the foot of the tree, a peaceful place to remember a loved one.
