Trees with snow in the Dorset countryside

The way that wind-driven snow settles on the sides of tree trunks, as well as building up in layers on the branches, reduces the winter landscape to a monochromatic abstract of dark bark latticework silhouetted against the white of the sky and fields beyond.

  1. Thanks. I was wondering whether to print a few out and put them in the communal hallway. Perhaps I’ll give it a go tomorrow. I rotate the hallway pictures now and again although very few pass by – it’s my mini gallery even if it is only the postman and the neighbours who see it.

  2. Easy to do. I have three frames with mounts that will take A4 prints. I just swap the prints when I feel like it. I guess people do look at the pictures because my neighbour asked me to put up labels saying what the images were (some are a bit abstract or macros) because her visitors often asked her about them.

  3. Thanks, Jo. I thought it was very special at the time, a couple of years back when the weather here was uncharacteristically severe. We were basically unable to get out of the village but I did venture out on foot and climbed part way up a hill to photograph these snow-blasted trees. It felt like quite an achievement – not on any ground breaking scale but on a personal level.
