Forgotten

(Posting a couple of days late) This afternoon, we decided to get the kids off their backsides, leave their games consoles in the off position, and teach them that there is a wonderful world beyond the four walls in which they live. So we headed over to Donington on Bain for a nice hike in the country. And it was great. Along the way we came across this old tyre swing sitting on the boundary of a medieval church (that is absolutely stunning - I will be going back). I just loved the way the moss had begun to take over both the tree trunk and the swing, giving a lost forgotten feel to the image. Couldn't help but wonder who might have played there last and where they are today. It was so peaceful there. Really can't wait to go back and spend a little more camera time there :)
Nice, and looking forward to your future shots of the area!

Some one must have great time playing on that swing -- but by now It looks pretty green and perished !

Nature always reclaims! Shows that Mother Nature is way more resilient than any of us mere mortals - and she will take it all back given half the chance. Looks great viewed on black - the detail really pops.

Such a magical spot with the old swing being overtaken with moss.
A super capture and so glad you dragged your kids out to see it as well.

Looks lovely on black. I too, wander who swung on it. I really like the mystery it brings, especially with the tyre being green too.
