This image was made at Skipwith, an area of ancient wetland heath that is being re-generated. I was attracted by the possibility some decaying birch tree logs held, though it took a while of searching for this possibility to occur to me.
This particular area in Skipwith is one I have visited several times and this is an important theme of my photography; getting to know a particular location and challenging myself to make images that perhaps I haven't considered before. The inspiration for this image came from the work of Anna Booth.
This older image has become seed image A for a new project called 'Bark' . In classic sonata form this is the 'exposition' section - in this case two themes are stated (image A and image. B).
