The wind that produced the wildness in the growth of this tree was becalmed on this day of our holiday in Scotland. The wild hawthorn trees that take this form are wonderful descriptions of the weather and the bleak looking hill in the background are not a place you would wish to be in foul weather.
But this day was completely still and everything in the landscape and seascape held a tranquility and peace that for all we knew could have been the precursor to a storm.
The stretching hawthorn tree is definitely accustomed to the strong winds. How fun to get a day without the wind, yet to see what it usually is by the shape of the tree.
Yes indeed – visible wind!
