Subject matter
This photograph of Betchworth Park in Surrey, one of several views of this site that Rosling took for Francis Frith & Co., depicts a grove of trees with overlapping branches. The scene is not picturesque in the traditional sense of the word, but offers a sense of the density and overgrown character of the park, a fitting backdrop for the medieval fortified ruin Betchworth Castle located nearby.

Physical Description
View of a park through the trees.
