This  project was photographed between September 2004 and August 2005 and exhibited in different configurations from 2007 onwards.
Shown here are just 5 from the original series of 12 large images.

The project explored an area of woodland located on the edge of a reservoir in the Peak District and looked closely at the seasonal changes over the period of a year. As an unpredictable twist, the trees and vegetation are also susceptible to the extremes of flooding and drought. The reservoir is primarily used to keep the canal system replenished acting as a gigantic header tank so consequently the water level can rise or fall in a short space of time. The twelve images show the visual transformation throughout the seasons of just one small area and highlight just how different the same place can appear when viewed over an extended period of time. When seen as a whole series the viewer can see all the subtle changes of the regeneration of nature throughout the cycle of a year.
12 large prints each 275cm x 43cm in size (almost 3 metres wide).
