the field in november



The first frosts of the season highlighting the pattern and structure of leaves, flowers and leaves. The low misty cloud making silhouettes of the bare trees. The hawthorns are getting stripped of their berries, only the red stalks remain. Any remaining leaves along with mosses and lichens are the sources of colour now (...and some of my favourite colour shades too).

foraging for christmas




Gathering larch cones with Christmas garlands in mind. Have been wanting to do this for the past couple of years but never seem to be near a larch tree at the right time. Today I had an hour to spare, a car and had noted the location of said trees AND the sun was shining so off I went. And what a blissful hour it was!

the hawthorn tree - november



In the fading afternoon light, the hawthorn tree is a silhouette of thorny branches and berries. The leaves have gone, but the berries remain. The colour of the lichen covered bark and the deep red of the berries is gorgeous.
