Looming out of the mist, the tree looks to be moving off leftwards. Threatened by the telegraph pole no doubt!
Our street looks like that this morning, only without the tree, the telegraph pole and the undergrowth: we have plenty of mist though Sad

When I was a child I had a book called The Travelling Tree, about a tree that gets bored, hitches up its roots and goes walkabouts, much to the disgust of the other trees. That's what I'm seeing here, it's striding off for a chat with the bird sitting on top of the pole.
I presume you've tried b&w??

Dutifully standing guard to its woodland, was misty all day over here too yesterday.

I'd get rid of the bloody pole. Pylons, wind farms etc. Constable never had this problem I'm sure.

That was then, Dougie, this is now, and personally I've got nothing against poles.

I was interested in the juxtaposition of the pole and the tree. To be fanciful about it, It's almost as if the tree recognises the pole as a distant cousin.
And there's a bird sitting on top of the pole, watching. It's probably a pigeon, but I'd like to think it's a Kestrel scanning the field for voles.
Hence the title.

Threatened to set fire to it of course.

Understated and subtle. The muted colours work a treat.
