Looking Up

You’re always told, in the books and on web sites, to always look behind you as a photographer – I’ve often found some really nice pictures by doing this. Recently I’ve been looking up a lot more as well and have had similar success.

We visited a new (to us…it was mentioned in the Doomsday Book apparently) wood today – Garnetts Wood between Barnston and High Easter in Essex. This is a very traditional English wood filled with Lime, Hornbeam and Birch trees, many of which have been expertly coppiced. Needless to say, it was extremely muddy but I pleasant walk nonetheless.

Looking up into this Hornbeam tree we were taken with the beautiful patterns created by the bark and the great canopy. I made an HDR shot because it was really quite dark in the wood itself  but obviously much brighter in the sky and I’m very pleased with the result. 

Hope you like this as well.
