The view from our caravan’s door, on the outskirts of Newquay; 12 Sept 2013.

Sitting by the door reading, thinking or just being, or lolling there inebriated, I was repeatedly impressed by the bulk and strength of this great tree – while hoping fervently that, leaning as it is, it wasn’t going to collapse on our car, which was parked right beneath it!

The caravans are manmade, fairly colourless, strictly rectilinear structures that are relatively fragile in build, whereas this great living thing cuts right across their frail artificiality with beautiful, natural curves, massive strength and, just visible here, a canopy that in the real world is a vivid green.

About Adrian Lewis
Photographer working in monochrome, colour and combinations of the two - with a great liking for all sorts of images, including Minimalism, landscapes, abstracts, soft colour, people, movement, nature - I like to be adventurous in my photography, trying new ideas and working in many genres. And I'm fond of Full English Breakfasts and Duvel golden ale, though not necessarily together.

    You’ve managed to make the caravans look positively eerie. I like the atmosphere in this image.

    I just absolutely love this!

    I like how you let the the tree almost cut through the image area…
    Like the atmosphere in the image and this really appeals to me. Feels mysterious and almost whispering.

This blog has two pleasures for me - creating the images and hearing from you - so get your thoughts out to the world!
