WOODLAND PATH

DSCF5675

I love woodland and the way the trees mark the seasons. It’s Spring, the beech trees have bright, lime-green. soft-to-the-touch leaves that gently filter the light rather than blocking it out. And the woodland flowers make their one-time bid to bloom and set seed before the canopy thickens up for the summer.

SNOWY GATEWAY

2015_01_29_12_03_20_OneShot

We have recently had our fair share of snow here in the Midlands of England, and I was well and truly caught out when I left home in an attempt to catch a train to see my daughter at university. I never made it as far as the station and, having no other alternative, ended up having a long trek home through ever deepening snow. No camera with me, alas, but my phone turned out to be more than useful when I captured this shot about a mile from home.
