During 2011, I photographed a tree each month. The tree stands in a field just off Barkby Thorpe Road on the border between Leicester and Leicestershire. This photo mosaic is a collation of the results. The individual photographs can be viewed on Flickr.
I did not make any attempt to take every photograph from exactly the same spot and with the same focal length but I tried to match the images at least approximately. Most of the photographs had to be taken at the weekend - especially the winter ones. I did sometimes leave it a bit late and some of the photographs were only just taken in the month intended. Still, I found it an interesting exercise and intend to repeat it in 2012. I am considering using this scene:
It is in the Watermead Country Park and about ten minutes walk from my home which would make getting to it easy. The tree and the vegetation will change a lot through the year and I like the fact that the scene includes water. This photograph was taken on a cloudy and overcast day but different weather conditions will change the scene considerably. I put the photograph on Flickr earlier today with the comment that I might use it as the subject of a photograph a month project. I have been surprised and pleased by the encouragement that I have received to go ahead - and so I probably will!
