Description

It’s in late December, in the northern hemisphere at least, that the anatomy of trees stands revealed. With many, the sycamore and chestnut for example, it’s the skeleton that seems exposed but with an oak I always have a sense of the energy expressed by its muscles and tendons.
Winter oak was developed from studying an example of  this species growing out of a nearby field boundary here in Mid Cornwall on a crisp December day recently. Cold sky-blues tell a truer tale than do the warm afternoon sunlight hues that bathe these branches, glowing that way only because the sun’s rays in late December come in at such a low angle, close to the south western horizon.
