Carholme Road, Lincoln

I got up early one morning, frosty, but a strong low sun. On the road into Lincoln is the old racecourse which has a row of trees running down both sides, I had been meaning to paint this scene for ages and will go back and do this one again, it lacks something ...

Well, I don't know about lacking something - I like it very much! nancy

Striking! It reminds me of a negative, almost because the contrasts are so strong.

Yet another high-contrast wonder! :) Always love your creation!
