Part of the grounds of the Reading Museum Arboretum. It was very windy and I knew the chance of getting a sharp shot with the camera out in the open was low due to vibrations so I decided it was a good time to try out a series VI Tiffen diffusion filter that I had recently picked up. When nature gives you wind it's sometimes best to accept it and spend some time exploring the softer side of Pictorialism.
