Drawn from a photo I found online, as I’ve never been there and hardly ever been in the county of Nottinghamshire, but this is a great tree and one of the most famous old trees in Britain. The young trees in the foreground are just as important as components of this picture; I especially like the twisty forms of the three young birch trunks on the left.
