Birch trees in Padley Gorge woods

Birch_tree_DiptychI’ve been experimenting with blending photos again. I think I’m going to end up with a series of images showing the patterns and lines you can find in trees. Some may remember the ‘Winter Trees’ image which was the start point. Anyway for this image I tried putting the original (straight out of the camera without any adjustments) alongside the finished blend in a diptych. I don’t know why yet but I find the combination really appealing. Perhaps it’s because together they make me look deeper at the two images. Maybe the two photos together raise metaphorical questions about creativity or even mystery about the process of transition. Whatever the reason, I’m going to experiment more with the idea of ‘before and after’ diptychs within my ‘Tree’ series.
