I have referred to the two photographs below as Woodland Sketches – the title seemed appropriate – but they are actually shots of a fruit tree growing in the neighbouring churchyard but overhanging my garden. The term ‘sketch’ is used to describe the light-handed, slightly impressionistic representation. Click on the images to enlarge if preferred.

I had promised myself a quiet walk along the bridle way, taking photographs as I strolled through the countryside. But before I could get out and about the weather changed. In place of the early sunshine it became wet and windy – quite unpleasant generally. So I was left sitting indoors, a grumpy, frustrated photographer. But all was not lost. I could take outdoor shots without subjecting myself to the dreadful conditions out there.
By pointing my camera at the tree tops outside the window and then adjusting the focus to give emphasis to the raindrops on the window pane I produced a series of marble-like abstract images.
Then, through the side window, I used the same technique on the trees further away, at the bottom of the garden. The result was obviously different, but I quite liked it.
Finally I adjusted the focus to concentrate totally on my ‘faraway tree’. Unfortunately it was not possible to avoid entirely the presence of the raindrops, but a little assistance from the saturation filter helped to create a pleasant ‘painterly’ result. And I was still dry and warm!

Yours and mine
These trees provide an attractive divide between two fields at the edge of our village. A stream follows a similar line just a few feet beyond the trees.

The warm rays of the rapidly setting sun backlight the distant trees and provide a red tinge to the main branches of the tree in the foreground.

I have a fondness for abstract images, for patterns and for reflections. The selection below – capturing the reflection of trees in the rippling surface of my fish pond – satisfy all of those interests.

If you go down to the woods today …..
Have you ever had the feeling, when walking through dense woodland, that you are not alone? . . . . . . Well perhaps you were right!
