Petrified Oaks IV

By jools59  
Hey all....long time no see...and may I wish you all a very Happy New Year..belated I know....work has been keeping me pretty busy and Ive only just had the chance to get out with the cam ...hope you are all well and will make the best effort to get round to see all the work I have missed over these past weeks.....

Tonites effort is the 'Petrified Oaks' at Mundon Hall Farm, nr Maldon in Essex. Terrific place with these eeriy oaks scattered over a field....great for photography...I have of course been inspired to create a digital manipulated image.....

Enjoy...thanks for looking...Jools Smile

Nice to see you back Jools and a Happy New Year to you !!
These oaks certainly look petrified.
About as petrified as I will be when I get my Winter heating bill in !!

Works well Jools, clever stuff and nicely "unreal" enough to make this stand out and look like art, rather than a photo anymore. I like this a lot!

Ive no idea...there are public footpaths from the church that go across the fields there...there were alot of walkers when i was there...didnt see any signs..but i would think twice about going into the actual field..as there are alpacas and i guess the farmer is quite rightly asking people to show respect and care to the animals....jools
