Light on Tree - Woodland Walk and nice light on tree

Woodland Evening Light

I always like unusual lighting conditions and on a recent woodland walk I noticed a tree which was being lit in spots thanks to the overhead canopy and surrounding trees filtering the light. This resulted in only a section of the tree being lit and thus created an effect which I very much liked. The shot is shown below. This shot was taken on 22nd June at 7pm so there was a lot of light around and sunset was around […]

Some Spring mornings have a mist of fog which can be nice to take photos during – however I was not lucky enough to be out and about while these mists were around – normally by 8:30am this has burned off. Its been over a week since I updated the PhotoBlog, so now I have uploaded 2 […]
