Picture of the Month April

This picture is called Winter Wood.

I was inspired by beautiful images of discarded frozen timber whilst walking through the forests and woodlands of Nova Scotia.

Looking beyond the immediate, I began to see images of lively shapes and frosted colours within the frozen wood.

The juxtapositioning of hot and cold colours and the patterns created by the shavings and twisted sinews of the trunks made me want to capture some of the vibrancy of a once living woodland giant.
