Spring walk along the Speed

Today was one of the first warm spring days in a while. I took a break from marking and joined my wife and our dog Pippa to walk down to the river. While Lori strolled I hung behind to draw this massive old tree that still grows along the river. Something about this huge trunk that seems to twist and lean like a some old but still very strong old person always captivates me when I walk by. It's probably over 100 years old and like many of the trees that once lined the river it may not be here long. I will miss it.
