My aim was to photograph a tree in every season.
The first step was to find the perfect tree. I decided on a tree close to Bassenthwaite Lake, an oak, that stood alone in a field. When shot from a certain location there was nothing behind the tree apart from sky.
Now to plan the images and visit regulary throughout the year.
I visited during a snow storm to capture the falling flakes and the bare branches
A visit when the leaves were young and bright green, with lambs in the field and soft gentle clouds floating across the blue sky
I decided to visit at sunset, the leaves were dark green and the sky turned orange.
I had to visit more often this season as I didn't want to miss the colours against a soft grey sky.
