The round shape of the berries doesn't correspond with the Spindle shaped berries of Euonymus europaeus..

The fruits certainly look more like a Crataegus. Lovely tree!

Enlarging the photo, one can see the thorns, that would also be an indicator for Hawthorn or Crataegus.
Not sure which Hawthorn it would be, but it is definitely not Euonymus.
The foliage and berry clusters are similar to the image by @kniphofia, but it is hard to tell if the leaves are identical to the photo by @NEILMUIR1. His leaves look more elongated in shape, and a bit more sparse. That could however be due to the fall changes in colour and texture, or to irrigation differences. I went through the first 5 pages of images for Hawthorn, but couldn't come up with a better solution.
Where do we go from here?

Good question Nora!
There are two options: propose the deletion or move the image to another plant. I hesitate in doing either and would rather give @NEILMUIR1 the opportunity of moving/deleting his own photo. I think just having this discussion attached to the photo shows that there is a discrepancy on the correctness.

Unfortunately, Neil has suffered some personal and physical setbacks in the last year. His most recent post was on October 1st, and the one before that was August 28th. In view of his low level of activity on the site, it might be best to agree on a likely place to move the image. Perhaps to the generic Crataegus entry?

I'm so sorry to hear of Neil's unfortunate difficulties, zuzu. Moving the image to the generic Crataegus entry would probably be a good idea. Thank you for your kind solution. I hope this meets with everyone's approval.
All the best to Neil. Group hug
