Thorp Perrow Arboretum

We're going on a bark hunt,
We're going to capture lots of them,
What a beautiful day,
We're not scared...
Uh oh, trees!
Lots and lots of trees!!!
Yesterday, I went on an adventure, to Thorp Perrow Arboretum, at 85 acres of all kinds of trees and shrubs, my slight obsession of bark peaked at max out mode ... So five hours later, some 200+ photos and some fallen specimens of bark and leaves, I left with inspiration to last me a lifetime ... well a good few years at the least.

Most of the images focus on bark texture and forms, which are often intriguing and caught in the right light beautiful to look at.

As most of the deciduous trees are still 'leaf-less' after the autumn and winter, this meant the bark was clearly visable and due to the lovely day we had, the sunlight glinting off the bark made fantastic photos!

Here are just a few of the photo's I took throughout the day:
