Photograph of two fir trees standing side by side on a piece of ground that slopes up towards the right. More trees stand in the background.

This photograph is a later carbon copy of the original albumen photograph. Carbon was a process that was less susceptible to fading, unlike an albumen print that is prone to discolouration over time.
