Another glorious day meant it was way to hot to venture out until 8.00pm in the evening. With sunset not until 9.20pm that’s not such a problem, the woods were still really dark with the heavy summer canopy blocking out much of the sunlight…so, this is a public footpath we (still) haven’t followed across the field of barley.

285/365v3 Drying the Washing…

…it’s like watching paint dry!

Another experiment – my 2nd ever time lapse…a few things to do differently, but an interesting start – 900 images packed into this 37 second video.


Some more experimentation – this is an in camera double exposure – what you are seeing here is the view I could see with the ground immediately below me exposed over the top. This hasn’t come out as well as I’d hoped – the grain of the footpath is too thick – but it’s an interesting effect that I will try again

Spotted this rather colourful caterpillar on a walk around Roxwell, it’s a Mullein Moth Caterpillar
