Bexley woods is located less than a mile from Bexley Village which lays in the suburbs of London. Bexley Woods image was captured on an early December morning in 2013. Wandering around the area, this image was taken when the sun had burnt a lot mist away that had been covering the area an hour beforehand, and the mist that was left, created a haze effect through the trees. The mist dispersing the sunning creates a dream-like effect. As the sun is near enough dead on facing the camera, it emulates the phrase 'looking into the light', something people describe especially when they have been in a sleep-like state or similar. The viewer may be distracted for some time when looking at this image in the hope of finding a fairy'esque creature camouflaged somewhere either in the leaves or in the bare branches of the tall spindly trees.
Isle of Wight Tree
Isle of Wight tree, located on a beach in the Bembridge area of the small island. This tree was at the top of the beach, dead, it is a stark contrast to the sea before it, filled with life and colour. It's leafless, and its bark is well weathered and bleached from the harsh sun it has had to put with during the summer months, completely unprotected. It has been subjected to carvings of visitors names, which aren't visible on the part of the tree in the image. A year later KJL visited this tree and it was very much different, a limb had been lost, perhaps by weather or by people climbing on to it. It has since lost its aesthetic value and is now, weirdly a bit of an eye sore on the beach. At least it can be remembered as a relic of beauty in this Isle of Wight tree image.
Joydens Wood Swing Tree
Joydens wood swing tree, located in woodland in Bexley, Kent. This solid oak tree has been enjoyed by adults and children through several generations. Whether its rambling, dog walking, summer days or going for a Sunday stroll, the tree always catches attention. Children promoted the great Oak to swing tree status because of its twisting, broad trunk and strong limbs. The ground of the immediate area surrounding the tree is a soft cushion made up of the thousands upon thousands of leaves it has lost during the countless seasons. These characteristics have made the tree infamous among locals to the area and known of if by the Joydens wood swing tree. The image is available in full colour or black and white - both give the viewer different atmospheres. Black and white evoking memories, while colour emits a warm and friendly atmosphere for the viewer.
Colour version available.
Trunks, this image was taken in Autumn 2011, in the Lake District - A time of year when the place seems to thrive. As seen in this picture of pine trees found at the top of Lake Ennerdale, Autumn is a time when nature's colours seem to be at their most vibrant, the moist air coupled with the contrast of miserable grey skies makes for striking images like this. This image features two dominating pine tree trunks in the foreground that invite the viewer to look further into the image, where they'll discover hundreds of pine tree trunks that reach high creating a great tree canopy. The ferns at the bottom of the image create a mirror like effect of the image as if looking at the trees reflection. The image is well balanced by the help of these ferns and green needles that frame the trunks in the middle of the image. Coicidentally, Green Window was taken earlier on the same day.
