wood

Another visit to Garnetts Wood in Barnston where the bluebells are still doing pretty well. I like how the depth of field gives the illusion that the bluebells are swirling around the bottom of the image.

We had a walk around Garnetts Wood this afternoon…this shot was taken just before the heavens opened and we got soaked. On returning home (about 3 miles away) we found there had been no rain at all there!


We took a quick trip out to Perry Green this afternoon to see how the Bluebells were doing. Whilst it’s still a little early in the season, I can conform they are doing well but there are still more to appear!


There was a deer there…honest!

Glorious weather here and it was lovely and cool in the woods…and really quiet, loads of wildlife about, the local buzzards were very active as were the woodpeckers.


Photography took last place in today’s events 😉


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.

Reflecting on Autumn

I’m a sucker for the silver birch shots, especially looking straight up from below…

Autumnal Silver Birch

…and when the sunlight catches them like this

Lighting up the Silver Birch


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.

We’re heading into the time of year when it is difficult to get out when it’s light…although I was out at sunrise this morning…but it was flat grey so nothing worth shooting, except a very nice large Grey Stork…but I had the wrong lens on my camera (a very common complaint!). So you get a shot of part of the headstock of my bass guitar, which I liked becasue it reminded me of the lines and curves theme I had a few weeks ago…and these lines and curves were sat about 6 feet behind me all the time!


We took our Sunday afternoon walk in Garnetts Wood today, I very mild overcast autumn day – perfect for a pleasant walk. I got a view shots and include them here for your enjoyment.

Continuing my occasional deliberate camera motion series we have this shot of some of trees in Rowney Woods, not a particularly original shot but enjoyable none the less.

I couldn’t decide whether to publish this shot or the following shot as my shot of the day. I deliberately went for the star-burst effect by closing down the aperture on the camera (to f22) and positioning myself so the sun broke through the branches.
