Echoing lines of deposit and wear,
scattered memories of ancient woods,
a hard won battle to live,
pockmarked by sweat and tears.
The landscape not far from Kirby Malham, in North Yorkshire on a wonderfully winter day between snow showers, brought the lines of the trees in to stark focus.
Cropped to make the most of panoramic view of the lens and the Four Thirds ratio and part of a project.
Converted into black and white and best viewed large,
Shot on an Olympus E30.
