Talon Oak - Richmond Park

Updated: Dec 16, 2020

On our many walks amongst the trees we often stumble across a tree that is slowly returning to the soil. Most of these appear bedraggled and beaten. This tree has been pollarded by the rangers, I suspect for safety reasons. When viewed from the trail it reminded me of a falcon's talon, not sad and beaten, but strong, with presence and with purpose.

Pixel peepers' notes: Shot on the mobile. There's no creative retouching to the shot. WYSIWYG if you stand on the trail. Of course I have removed all of the colour, by way of reducing the saturation in post, and added a vignette, to push your attention towards the tree. That's all.
