I found this tree on a shoot on my birthday in September, but I managed to ruin the frame when the TMAX disagreed when loading onto the Paterson reel.

It was a really bright morning. Backlighting like this would kill colour, but with black and white it just gives this ethereal glow.

On the back of the left hand bough is some paint where you can faintly read "The Hippy Tree". I did some searching and found that the Cissbury Ring was the location for a 1970s Isle of Wight style festival where about 12 people turned up.
