St Ives Estate, near Bingley, Sunday, February 17, 2013.

The St Ives Estate is a large, rambling area comprising the former family home of the Ferrand clan, now a care unit, surrounded by dense woodland which is home to a huge and varied amount of wildlife, a pond, a golf course, a children’s adventure play area and a turf research institute, among others. These pictures were taken on the afternoon of Sunday February 17, 2013. I think they tend to show how nature and man-made structures have grown into each other, until their provenance is almost indistinguishable; has mankind aped nature with his moss-covered dry-stone walls and lichen-splattered, seemingly-random stone monuments, or vice versa?
