I grew up around big old trees, climbing into the weeping willow that sat over the village pond and watching the fish. Setting traps in the woods to trip my brother up. Picking the apples off the trees when they were ripe and juicy. I was so lucky to be in the countryside when young and I’m back in a similar area now. I love being around the woods. It makes me feel youthful and free which is so needed to help balance the complicated and tiring work I do.
I’ve only started taking photos outside in the last few years but trees are such great subjects that I find myself drawn to images with them in. I like my post All of me and woodland hide and seek but my favourite image so far in the woods, is my self portrait Dryad . Trees don’t turn me on or make me horny but they do help my mood, and they are amazing for my photographic inspiration too. So I went out this week to take some more woodland images
