Found photos







Taken last Summer and forgotten because I returned from the short holiday with other things uppermost in my mind. The pleasingly eroded shapes of Scots Pine trees on the sand-dunes at Formby Point coastal nature reserve near Liverpool. Squeezed, half-starved and stripped half-bare by the wind and the shifting sands, they're kind of sad, but their frozen-in-movement forms have a tough, compelling weirdness.

Gorgeous photos, like paintings, especially the second and third ones, because of the movement of the sky. I love the shapes of wind-blown trees.

I love what the sky is doing too

Like old silver prints.

They are sad, slightly disturbing, the angle at which they're taken increases this. But they're very strong, beautiful in their own way.
