We carry the weight of this flesh,
hardened softness on fragile bones,
gripping the air of winter’s chill,
waiting for our summer of green.

One of the trees on Hob Moor Stray in York, (north Yorkshire, England), after last year’s snow fall. With it’s last fruit hanging on under the weight of the snow and ice.

Converted into black and white and best viewed large.

Shot on an Olympus E30.
