Fallen Tree

I am beginning to think I have developed some kind of subconscious love of fallen or broken trees. Not sure when this actually started but I have discovered four or five posts on such subjects at this stage. I suppose it is just the nature of photographing trees that I am obviously going to stumble across many of these things, but what makes me have to photograph them I just don’t know. I suppose there is some kind of obscure beauty to these trees, nature tries to defeat them but they just struggle on and slowly repair themselves.

The trees in the background have appeared on this blog before, they are becoming regulars at this stage but I had to explain to them on this particular day they would have to play second fiddle. They were very understanding about this scenario and behaved themselves very well indeed.

The little stone bridge on the left hand side has also been captured before, who knows I may just have it set up on wheels and I bring it everywhere with me.

  1. Hi Dave,
    I have the feeling that this is in the wild(even if this is a park). The fallen branch has not been quickly hauled away. It makes for a more interesting composition than a tidy tree.
    I guess that your “background casti” was cooperative. They will have their turn 🙂

      It may be a park but trust me this is a wild place too. Thankfully the rangers tend to leave nature to it’s own devices, unless it’s a hazard to the general public they do tend to just leave trees / branches alone and just let nature take its course.
      One of the reasons why I love the place so much.
