Maple Tree & Abingdon Sailing Club

Maple Tree & Abingdon Sailing Club





The images that make up this design were both photographed in Abingdon.  

The first image is of a beautiful autumnal sun, rising and emerging through early morning river mist; and the foreground a row of sail boats, creates this smokey silhouette.  The second image; a maple tree on Stert Street.  The leaves had turned from orange, yellow, red, and even a blueberry colour (this was quite an amazing sight to see!).

My design was initially created to appear on the Oxford Writers House website, at the end of 2017. To support a writers competition page, to celebrate Oxfordshire; to inspire writers. This is one of a series of four different designs.

On a weekend stroll around the back of town centre on Stert Street, I spotted this beautiful autumnal Maple tree.  

The most amazing thing about it was the blueish/purple leaves against the turning reds and oranges. I had to take its picture - the colours were amazing!

When the early morning river mist and sun both rise, it creates a very atmospheric and beautiful effect to its surroundings. Pretty breath taking!  

The silhouettes of the sailing boats against the rising sun and mist, blend together creating blurred lines.
