Peperharow Plain (2000)
David Baldwin Night
Both this image and
Peperharow Plain 2002 are really for my father, even though he died
back in 1991.
When I was a schoolboy I used to visit home on Sundays.
My Dad used to drive me back to school just after 8 o'clock because
roll call was about 9 pm. We used to drive eastwards on the
Elstead Road across Peperharow Plain . Both the 2000 and 2002
trees were set back from this road on the right hand side. I
never saw them at the time, but later when I decided that I wanted
to commemorate those drives I returned to explore the area better
and found them then. I like to look at this Peperharow
Plain 2000 image and consider that our car headlights would have
illuminated the tree in the same way.
