Moonrise over Kenidjack

Plein air, oil on board apprx. 24 x 15cm

It’s been several years since I was last able to get to this viewpoint in lower Kenidjack valley. The National Trust periodically clears all the underbrush here and one can get closer to the reed beds growing in the old leat system which diverted and harnessed the stream to drive the water wheels located a few hundred yards further downstream. For a month or so at the start of the year, the thin branches of the windblown, stunted trees turn a beautiful wine-dark shade of red just before the first buds begin to appear.
