Bakestondale Moor


An experimental or ‘artworked’ picture of trees on Bakestondale Moor above Pott Shrigley on the Cheshire, Derbyshire borders. A beautiful and very atmospheric location which has more than a passing resemblance to the Yorkshire dales and is yet another of the many varied landscape aspects in this corner of the UK. The image has been treated with various filters, coloured layers and a texture overlay to create a kind of painting-like effect though this was not the primary intention. Instead, I wanted to create an image with a unique photographic quality rather than a painting simulation. Noble and resilient trees in this kind of wild landscape is a favourite subject of mine and I am always on the lookout for those wonderful wind-shaped Scots pines standing along and resolute on remote hill tops.
