Low Sun on Birch Trees near Durham

I love how the low sun in the north of England illuminates the trees and woodland as if from below. The fiery glow of the birch trees and endless horizontal shadows are quite magical, as is the stillness and peace that seems to pervade these scenes.

The distance components of this painting were overworked but I’m including the painting here because I think the glow of the trees and quality of light and color in the foreground are quite accurate for the north east.
