This image is part of my ongoing red rose project. I’m very passionate about red roses and I want to capture their beauty in as many ways as I can think of and portray the many different sides of the rose. This image was inspired when I went for a walk through the woods by my house and saw this uprooted tree. The tangly mess of roots made me feel uneasy and had a sinister quality to it. I imagined something innocent and beautiful being taken in by the grabbing fingers and this photo resulted.
