This particular winter brought some notably sustained periods of snow in the north. The tree was familiar to me and I had considered it a worthy subject on a number of occasions but I had yet to find the photograph for it. When the snows came the shape and form of the tree began to emerge from the blank canvas that was developing around it.

As it turned out, on the day the snow was at its heaviest – the day I thought would give me the picture I was looking for – the wall, the fence and some of the longer grass also managed to register on a landscape that was otherwise completely white. These other elements added the mimimim amount of context, necessary to complete the image.
