Intimate landscapes

The title of this group of images is borrowed from one of my early photographic idols - Eliot Porter - the eminent American landscape photographer. His photography is known world wide not just for the quality of his technique but for the beauty and fragility of his subject matter.

The images all have a more immediate and close range focus. Some are of particularly unusual and beautiful trees, others grasses, mosses and lichens with amazing and engaging natural textures.
