Last Monday was cold but with a bright low sun. I took this photograph of the crocuses peeping their hands above the grass in Victoria Park, Denton.
In doing so I also captured the shadows of a tree thrown against the Denton Mural. The mural was painted on the wall of Denton Pool facing Victoria Park in 2000. It was conceived by David Vaughn and commissoned by the Denton Town Twinning Association. It serves to commemorate both the second millenniumm and the continuing friendship between the people of Denton and Montigny le Brettoneux.
To view the whole length of the mural one has to walk to the other side of the flowerbeds across which stretches the shadow of another tree.
At this distance and with the light falling directly on to it the detail is difficult to discern. At a later date I hope to take a series of closer shots. For now you can see an enlarged view of the central portion on my photoblog sithenah.
