Photographs to inspire my textile studies

Many of these photos were taken on 27 December 2014 (with a few from Summer 2014 of spring flowers to remind me that spring is coming!!) after heavy snow the night before (the one of the tree in the dark was taken during the snow storm).  I decided not to just take pretty scenic photos but concentrated more on strong lines or patterns whether in the trees, made by the fence lines or just the snow on the road and also on the colours against the snow too – I looked at what I was taking with sketching and textile work in mind and this has changed what inspires me photography already at this early stage.
