I return to the forest. There has been a heavy snowfall overnight and although it is midday, much of the snow remains in the trees and on the ground. I use intentional camera movement rather than multiple exposures, that has been my preferred method in the Essence of Trees so far. I am fascinated by the patterns that emerge from my camera and enjoy playing rather than taking the making of images too seriously. There are a number of fallen trees that cut across my images that for me, show the reality of the life of a tree and the essence that it might succumb to the changeable and turbulent weather of an Island.
The snow starts falling as I retrace my steps. The skies are dark overhead. I am finding it difficult to shake off the disappointments of this week. However, there is lots to reflect on in the Critical Reflection of Week 1 post, which I can then use to move on to Week 2 in a more positive frame of mind.
