Tree shadows on Meadows

Tree shadows on Meadows

About this memory

The afternoon sun creating shadows from the winter skeleton trees, their branches bare, some hanging at the top of the picture. The tree-shadow points eastward, across the Meadows where people are playing football. On the left is Quartermile, the new glass-fronted blocks rising above the stone pavilions, former medical wards when it housed the Royal Infirmary, but this time over a decade since it moved to Little France. Parts of Arthurs Seat are just visible through the trees
