The crooked tree

This tree is in a field between Stevenage and Knebworth in Hertfordshire. It looks as if it’s been struck by lightening at some point and it certainly looks pretty rotten on the right hand side.

On the day I took this picture I went out early and the sun was quite low in the sky and to the right in this picture. I set an exposure of 1/640 at F9 and I’m quite pleased with the result – I think the path running past the tree leads the eye into the picture quite nicely.


I’m a software developer by profession but I’ve been taking pictures since I was about 8 years old. In that time I’ve owned cameras of all types and sizes from 120 roll film thro’ 35mm to my current Pentax K-5, Ricoh GXR + P10/S10/A12 28mm/A12 50mm, Canon S95 and recently acquired Sony NEX 6.
