My Trees at Warter - Certainly not Hockney's

Without the artistic flair and style of David Hockney this is my poor quality photograph of the trees that featured in his picture "Bigger Trees near Warter" which he donated to the Tate Britain. The artist spends some of his time living in Bridlington painting Yorkshire Wolds scenes. 

The details and a picture of the painting "Bigger Trees at Warter" can be found on the Tate Collection Website by clicking here.

I often pass by this wood and it wasn't until recently that I identified this location as the place featured in the huge painting. I wanted to capture the trees whilst having the golden light of a setting sun playing across the trees. I didn't quite make it on this occasion but will be attempting it again soon.
