Back to black (and white)

After my recent bravery with colour, I'm back on more familiar territory

Last of the winter - at last!

With some bouts of warmer weather in recent days marking the beginning of Spring, I went out with a view to seeing if I could capture anything that marked its beginning. Instead, I came back with a shot more suitable to the end of winter.

I spotted this old root, long since separated from the tree that it used to support, and saw that it had captured some wind-blown leaf-fall. I loved its curving grain and the way it was reunited in decay with the leaves it once helped sustain; partners for the last journey together across the River Styx.
