I have a thing for trees

The last time I was out and about with the intention of taking pictures, was in November 2016, in Berlin.

After that, it took me some time to organise and process the work I came back with. During the Christmas holidays, I read a few articles about post-processing in Lightroom and learned a few tricks I wanted to apply to older photos. Time flew.

Going through last year’s photos, I found quite a few of them have trees as a subject. Trees are fascinating and elegant, no matter the season. They can set the mood of a photo.

Some are more striking than others, like the ones at Sachsenhausen Concentration Camp. They’re beautiful figures in a former place of terror and death, and probably their falling leaves and autumnal aspect contributed to the disturbing atmosphere.
