Spotted these sycamore seeds that still hadn’t fallen in Rowney Woods today.
Coming home from a Camera Club meeting I had a spare 30 mins around sunset to stop off, so I took the long way home and came back via Debden. I stopped off a the church and walked down to the lake where there was a lonely Swan and (briefly until he saw me) a Grey Heron. This was one of the last shots I took and includes none of the local wildlife but I like it because it reminds me how peaceful it was down there. This really captures the mood perfectly.
A rather macabre subject today. I didn’t set this up, someone had laced this twig through the deer skull so it was at about head height…I thought it created a particularly spooky subject. For those of you who would like to see something a bit more pleasant…
Lovely work this lunchtime through Rowney Woods in Essex. There was a slight mist throughout the woods giving some great atmosphere…there was also a lot of bird activity including
Our regular visit to Rowney Woods was very pleasant in the very mild weather we are having at the moment. There was just a little bit of mist that hadn’t burnt off which gave the light a really nice softness. More pictures after the break
This is no reflection on what actually happened on Christmas Day – we had a lovely day (and a very pleasant morning walk in Rowney Woods, which we had all to ourselves)…but it was an amusing title.
Back in March (!) I got my old Nikon D60 converted to infrared and went out and shot a whole load of Infrared images. I couldn’t suss out how best to process them and got a bit fed up and put them to one side.
I finally got round to working out how best to process them and really like the results. I now can’t wait for next spring to get out and shoot some more infrared shots and get more into this side of photography.
Here’s Doctors Pond in Great Dunmow…not sure why but (ignoring the cars) this has a 1950’s feel to it.
More from Rowney Woods. The effect makes it look like the trees are full of cherry blossom
The process has an interesting effect on the colour of clothes.
Rowney Woods was looking really nice today in its late autumn, early winter colours. I really couldn’t pick which image to choose for today’s picture so you get four…The main shot is of an area the Forestry Commission usually cut back once the bracken is past its best, I’m glad they haven’t this tear as the colour of the bracken really sets off nicely against the green of the moss.
This is the same area as the main image. The central main tree is the tree you see the trunk of in the main image.
I’m a sucker for the silver birch shots, especially looking straight up from below…
…and when the sunlight catches them like this
We popped out to Rowney Woods this morning for a walk. Whilst there were some pretty threatening clouds around the sun did periodically make an appearance as it did in this shot as we were leaving the woods, lighting up the young oak tree at the entrance.
Some days you just have to use what you have.
This shot is from my morning walk and is one of those emergency shots you take, just so you have something in the bag. Today I was glad to have it as this was the best part of the day weather wise and I really didn’t fancy trying to create something this evening…so here you have a typical Essex bridge, concrete and ugly as sin, but it keeps my feet dry as I cross the River Chelmer.
