A stroll in the woods

When the sun is low in the sky, casting a golden sheen on everything it caresses, I can feel the pull of the woods.

It's now become almost a part of my photogaphic life to stick the 70-200mm lens on my camera, open up the aperture as wide as I can and go for a stroll through the trees.

Shafts of light find their way through the gaps, creating molton glows on all they touch.

And when that light is coming from behind, even the most mundane leaf, fern or twig suddenly becomes magical.

Here are a few shots I took last night:

i'm sitting in our breakfast room next to the window that is half covered by jasmine outside. the bottom half is a tangle of leaves just begging for your lens! :) xoxox

When I was in tv, a little old man taught us to see the world in different ways. The way you see reminds me.

Guyana-Gyal - come back in 30 years and I'll be littler and older... ;)

Gorgeous; like Pat (and you) I like the top one best, it's luminous.

Kim Ayres said...

Eryl - thank you. It's my favourite too :)

Ahhh, but obviously you don't have to be a little old man to see the world differently, the way you do
