It’s rare that I take a photo that I can say I undoubtedly love, but today is one of those occasions. Originally the plan was to get up at around 4am to make the hour-long walk to the top of the moor, just in time to catch the sun rising. In the end though, I decided to take the easier route, and stay in bed for another hour, instead taking a morning walk through the woods.
Here a climbing plant clings to the trunk of a tree, its leaves providing some interest in the foreground of the image as the viewer’s eye is led up the trunk of the tree to the spindly branches at the top, framed on all sides by the bare canopy of the woods. This one tree stands apart from all the rest.
