Here’s another image from yesterday morning. I approached these lovely trees from the left of where I was standing to take this shot; they had caught my eye from a long way off. As I approached I noticed the frozen water and as I walked around the edge of the ice I saw the three trees in the background, and everything just fell in to place
I had an early start to the day. Originally there was the promise of some mist patches but the latest weather report before I got in the car suggested there would not be any. As I drove along the dual carriageway, heading south, I had still not decided where I was going to go. Driving past the turning for one of my two options decided for me.
A little further along the road, however, I spotted a line of trees in the adjacent field and I stopped in a convenient lay-by to investigate. There was some potential for some monochrome tree images, which is what I’m really looking for at the moment, but the first thing that caught my eye was the beautiful colours. What is happening to me, colour photography of all things!
I did hopefully take one or two potential monochrome tree images but here is the first image of the morning. It reminds me how incredibly beautiful a sunrise really is, a really primitive and sometimes emotional experience.
On a quick walk in the woods at lunchtime looking for inspiration I came across a rotting tree trunk and just loved the colours and details. I particularly like the first image.
