There is a tree at Hardcastle Crags, a local National Trust site, that utterly captivates me. I have taken many photos of it over the years but none as special as this, a true tree portal to Faerie.
It is a beech tree, gnarled and twisted by age and the elements. The trunk splits in two and rejoins, forming a perfect keyhole shape. I cannot help but imagine if I found the right key this tree portal would lead to a magical Otherworld. One spring day I happened to be there as the low sun shone perfectly through the keyhole trunk, creating a perfect starburst. I have never seen this happen again, before or since, and remain grateful that I was there at exactly the right time and place to witness it.
High-quality photographic print, professionally printed.
Presented with a free cream coloured mount and backing board in a cellophane bag.
It is ready to frame, or of course, you can use your own mount to suit your own tastes.
The watermark does not appear on the print.
Due to a quirk of the printing, the print is roughly A4, but not quite. Please see the exact dimensions below.
Print is 203 x 306 mm (7.9 x 12 inches)
With the mount it measures 280 x 356 mm (11 x 14 inches)
