Sometimes I come across a scene and am instinctively drawn to it. If it’s in a place which I visit regularly, it’s interesting to see how the light, weather and time of day influence both the experience and my photographic inspiration.
This Scots pine is a case in point; one in a nature reserve which we pass every time we walk along the footpath by the lake shore. I enjoy it every time, and photograph this particular metres-long branch sometimes. I make a special effort in this case because I love Scots pines, because the branch reaches out wonderfully towards the water, and because one day, an unsupervised kid will bounce on it too hard and snap it from the tree.
