'Bishops Wood' and 'At the Centre of the Forest' are the large scale cyanotypes works that continue the exploration of the atmosphere and feeling of trees and wooded areas. 

‘Bishops Wood’ is a large scale cyanotype made of up to 12 A4 panels. The wood at Magus Muir near St Andrews was the site of the murder of Archbishop Sharp in 1675, during the Scottish reformation. The murderers were executed in Edinburgh; the head and two hands from three of them are buried in the graveyard of Cupar Old and St Michael of Tarvit. The wood is supposedly haunted.

‘At The Centre Of The Forest’ is a piece that was originally planned as a photogravure print. In the end, Jonny decided to use the cyanotype process to produce this large scale piece of 18 A4 sections. Unlike the majority of photographic printing processes, the chemicals used in creating cyanotype images are not toxic and therefore eco-friendly. Cyanotypes have always been associated with images of flora from some of the earliest examples such as the work of Anna Atkins, whose book Photographs of British Algae: Cyanotype Impressions is the first to be illustrated entirely with photographs.
