Woodland path.

Two or three times a week I go for a walk in one of the local woods. These are open deciduous woodland tracts that adorn the steeper slopes of the valleys around here. Mainly of beech, they are full of plant and birdlife as well as the homes of badger, fox and deer.

I usually take my camera as it's part of my relax-time. But I have discovered that it is amazingly difficult to take interesting images of woods that reflect their peace and calm. Generally you just get an amorphous mass of green and trunks which just ends up being a restless and unsatisfying visual experience.

It's no better with intentional camera movement: just green and brown stripes with wiggles.

One ICM type does hold more promise though, and this is where you have some sort of path to create a story for the eye to follow and then imagine.

This is one of those.

I'm a bit non-existent on Flickr just now which is rather a regret on my part. Hopefully real life will get a bit easier in a month or two and I'll be able to interact more with my friends here. Meanwhile I'll send you all a wave :)

Thank you for taking the time to look. I hope you enjoy the image :)
