It’s a new week and a new theme all this week; ‘Trees’. Today’s image is of a fantastic gnarled, twisted and ancient tree I came across in the gardens of Doddington Hall in Lincolnshire.

Another lily shot today, continuing this extended series. Withered and hanging by a thread there’s a very different feel to this image though. It reminds me a little of those images of fish hanging from a line and rod.

A new week begins as the last one ended, with an image of a lily. Still got a few corkers to share with you from a session I did over the weekend. It’s just possible that I have become a little obsessed with these lovely flowers of late. I’m seeking therapy. Enjoy.
