My Walk this Week – Landscape Ageing and Restoration

My walk this week is from the National Botanic Garden of Wales (NBGW), though it turned out not to be the walk we had expected as the Pont Felin Gat woodland was closed off to the public for clearance / restoration work. The images show one of the existing lakes in the gardens as well as the site of another lake from the past. This is being restored but in the meantime the landscape of tree stumps creates some fascinating patterns, textures and colours.

So we followed the “blue” walk instead and climbed past old farm buildings which also look in need of restoration. Again, the colours, patterns and textures revealed by ageing took my eye and I focused my camera on some of the details. More landscape and details to come on Wednesday.

    • Yes I agree Cindy, thank you. I like the colours in that bleak landscape of stumps – they are similar to those in the windows, walls and lichen around the old farm building. If I had produced the stumps shot in monochrome it might have looked like a WW1 battlefield scene.
