It was one of those afternoons. The light was beautiful as the sun was setting but could I see a composition! I made the one exposure but there is not enough in it to make it interesting. I guess that as a photographer I am basically an opportunist. I go hunting for pictures rather than plan what I want to take.
So I drove on to the woods leading to a local beauty spot. The work of Charlie Cramer lead me to look at the trees in the woods as a drove up to the view point where there was not an image to be made. So I drove down the road a little way to a forestry carpark and in very low light made these two images. I was glad to have a tripod in the boot (trunk for those who live across the pond) as they are both long exposures.
In the first I love the sense that the trees have great claws anchoring them to the earth.
