Hugh Burden photographer - about the Oak Bark photographs

'... during a visit to Blenheim Palace, near Oxford, one lazy weekend I came across some truly magnificent ancient Medieval Oak Trees scattered around the fabulous gardens. Their bark twisted and gnarled, savaged by the years and weather, whispered tales of old and spoke out like ghosts waiting to be exorcised and released'

Hugh Burden photographer - about the Pine Bark photographs

'... magnificent old pine trees with coarse bark like crocodile plate tell many stories. While making the second photograph in this series for a moment an electrical cable clip caught my eye  -  but I was wrong  -  it was'nt a clip  -  it was the beak of a majestic bird of prey.'
