Was away to the woods again this morning to catch the morning light. Came upon this trainer that had been dumped along with some other rubbish so decided to use it as a prop for a different kind of shot. Placed the trainer on a rotting tree stump and added the toadstools and pine cones.Once again the lighting was achieved with a pair of bicycle lamps with a black cloth background.

Very skilfully done and i like the idea of turning something horrible (dirty trainer) and turning it into something lovely.
