This tree is probably about four or five hundred years old.
It now stands by the lake, but when it grew it would have been on the lower slopes of a little tributary valley
off the Glyme valley, with a small stream flowing near by.

Many people tend to assume my series photographs follow the seasons (especially when in sets of four),
and in this case they do roughly (as a set of 12 months).
But my main aim in series is to catch different lights rather than seasons.
There's usually a lot more variation within one month, or even a day than there is between the seasons.
