Just a tree or a natural living sculpture?

We all know that trees come in all shapes and sizes. Some are grouped together to form a coppice, forest or wood, but it’s when they stand alone that their true beauty and magnificence can be really appreciated.

In winter when the tree is stripped of its leaves, the many years of growth can be witnessed, as each branch appears to intertwine with its neighbour, yet achieving an overall symmetry of shape and form. Is it any wonder that as photographers we are drawn to these rather special natural living sculptures in the landscape around us?

This shot was taken in the Brecon Beacons of Wales earlier this year.
