A Winter’s morning in Colchester. This very ground felt the weight and scarring of Queen Boudicca’s army in her journey towards her showdown with the Roman garrison stationed at Colchester. An amazing and tragic story of the rising up of the feminine against oppression and subjugation. In taking the image, I was not only struck by the history, but by these bare trees which to me somehow spoke in to the tragedy of the event. The old Roman wall was just to the left, out of the image.
