Twisted Trees of Staffin   Staffin, Skye, Scotland

This little woodland near the coast at Staffin on Skye is a windswept place.  The trees seem to have grown stunted and are bent over at fairly extreme angles and the whole woodland has a slightly menacing creepy feel to it as if the branches and twigs might spring into life and grab at you as you walk through.  I wanted to try and make sense of the chaos and found some trees that fitted the bill and formed a reasonably satisfying composition.  the light was contrasty, not the easiest to deal with, but it did pick out the branches well so overall I am pretty happy with the result.
