tree stump in ancient forest monochrome fine art photograph

Terrible title I know… I took this old hollowed tree trunk many years ago when I was just getting back into film having been previously lured away by the digital revolution. The shot was taken in Pembrokeshire on one of my first films using medium format – I was using an old 1950’s Rolleiflex TLR camera that I’d bought secondhand from Jessops for the princely sum of £70. This is the first time I’ve printed this image, I wanted something a bit different for the gallery, and quite splendid it looks too.
