The soil around here is predominantly made up of clay through which water does not drain easily, and rainwater has sat for days around the base of this tree for much of the last month. The bare skeleton of the tree reflects well in the pool of water and I’ve already taken a few shots of it; a compact camera is almost always lodged in a pocket even for a walk to fetch the paper.
While processing this shot, I flipped it vertically and derived this image. It feels stronger to me this way up with a ‘base’ that is suggestive of an ultra-wide lens. There will be other images of this tree I am quite certain as the seasons come around.
