The Ridge Trees project concentrates on a specific area of the New Forest, Hampshire and has been governed by two triangles. The first of these relates to three geographical points of the Forest with the second concerned
with light and time with the three points being mist,  autumn and winter and at the cusp of dawn.
The Forest is transformed by mist especially when seen through a plantation of
beautifully straight pines unencumbered by high bracken and undergrowth. The mist softens and filters the light.
I’ve returned to the various locations in late morning where the Forest has been
absolutely soaked by heavy rainfall overnight. The morning sun has lit and warmed
up the woodland so that the trees and small water pools in the bracken are steaming and it is almost like looking at Icelandic thermal pools.
