Photographer's Note

While wandering along the coast near to my home city of Lancaster in the North West of England I was being treated to an unusually still day. These trees have not seen many of those. Only the day before the wind had been fiercely strong.

The winds on the west coast tear in from the Irish Sea and the Atlantic and create vegetation that grows in strange wind blown shapes. Almost like they have been frozen these trees look like they are battling high strength winds when in fact there was no breeze to speak of.

To get this shot I lowered the exposure until the sun did not blow out the shot, easy with a digital SLR by checking the histogram, leaving the sky nicely detailed as the cirrus clouds from an impending front drifted overhead.
