Pollarded tree at Bowness on Windermere

Whilst at St Annes last week we went on a trip to Windermere and had a lovely sail up the lake from Bowness to Ambleside and back. I'll maybe post some photographs of that some time but for now I thought I'd share this view of a pollarded tree on the Glebe.

The Lake and busy shoreside shops are out of sight on the other side of the hill.

This is a contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday.


  1. What an interesting tree - it looks like it could come alive.

  2. This tree, all knobby and gnarly, probably has some stories to tell! Ahhh if only it were enchanted to spill the beans to us!! Cool Shadow Shot.

  3. So scenic and the tree has so much interesting knobbly character!

  4. Had to go a look up that word.
    Saw some great pictures of other pollarded trees.

  5. The pollarded trees are amazing and do make for a great shadow shot, Gerald! I think I shall start referring to my knees as being pollarded!!! Sounds better than just being "old joints"!! Hope you're enjoying a great weekend!


  6. A beautiful shot. Thanks for your beautiful contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

    Come see the Flag in the Wood shadow. Have a blessed Sunday!

  7. A Whomping Willow pruned perhaps!???

    Great composition!


  8. I agree, this is surely a beautiful shot. I have seen pollarded trees but this one is beauty.
