Foggy morning along the Wells Road near Broadwalk, south Bristol; 13 Mar 2014.

The huge Plane tree in the foreground has had its branches pruned many times, including recently, giving it its bare, knobbly appearance.  At top left, a pigeon perches, probably a Wood Pigeon, gazing down at the crawling traffic below.  There is another pigeon, further right.  The tree behind retains its growth of thin branches from last year – it has yet to be shorn.

Canon G11 PowerShot at 63mm (35mm equivalent); 200 ISO; Silver Efex Pro 2, starting at the Film Noir 1 preset.


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.

    The graininess and vignetting seem just perfect for this image. And it’s interesting to confirm that the shape IS actually from serious pruning.

      Glad it hits you, Lynn – I’m never sure about grain these days, but here it gives an “in earlier times” look. These are huge Plane trees beside a very busy main road, and so great attention is paid to their pruning and stability. A

    I see many trees that I think are exceptional in one way or another, but I oh, so seldom take (or make) the time to do a study. I like this one very much–yet another inspiration.


  3. The foggies are some of my favorites. XXX ATP XXX


  4. Great image – as you know I’m a fan of the fog! The tree makes a wonderful silhouette 😞

    Good post, have been peering at it to see the pigeons..but my laptop screen may not be clear enough!! or it is just too foggy and I have to take your word for it.


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