Trees and Moons. 2017
Trees are of those things you photograph without really think ing about it, a walk in the park or down the street, there are trees everywhere. I have a fascination about trees, their shapes and constant change through the seasons from the growth of new buds and falling of leaves and fruit. I love to think about magical stories and folklore that accompanies these beautiful towers of nature. Some of the trees are removed from the original backgrounds. Other tree iPhone images are often made onto brushes, these are used in various ways, backgrounds, textures and branches can represent so many different thins in the image.
There are several in their set of work, I've included four here. The first two, Spring Tree and Autumn Tree have included the circle in several ways, for the backgrounds and the moons. The moons have been created from the textures in the background.
The second set, Light of the Moon and Moonlight are focused more on the mystical & magical stories. I prefer to use the trees shapes that are created in the winter, the Skelton shapes and twisted branches have a magical feel all of their own. I remember as a child I watched a program called .The Lightening Tree. We all have memories around trees, siting under them for picnics, climbing them and falling out into abed of nettles.
Nature is so important to us and trees have a special place in the world, without them we’d be lost to the world. I hope you can weave your own personal stories around the image.
