abbey in the evening

I took this photo last night when out with the dog. Again its the local Abbey (12 century dontchya know!) and what struck me was the single cherry tree – which is now very old, blooming as much as it can. I think the surrounding trees are struggling to flower this year….I have noticed that less and less blooms are appearing as each year passes. In fact, the council are now starting to chop a few trees down, which is very very sad, but if they are diseased or something, maybe its for the best. Down below the Abbey is the river which cuts through the town. It hosts so much wildlife, like herons, swans, ducks, otters, kingfishers, etc. This was taken in the evening so its getting dark and not much can be seen, but I thought this was a nice shot anyway. I’m trying to record the Abbey as it is, before it becomes a visitor centre with a glass frontage (ugh!).
