A Hint of Sunlight

A hint of sunlight forms part of the reflection in the lower section of this image and is a subtle reminder of the Autumn weather on the day of my walk along the Tennant Canal near Swansea.

It is the pattern and direction of lines and the texture in this photo that I enjoy. The banks of the canal are having a bad hair day – or would it be thought of by some as a distinctive style.

Complementary images are posted on Instagram through the week and can also be seen on the sidebar of the StillWalks blog.

Standing in the Sun

The moss on this woodland branch seems to be enjoying a glimpse of sun as much as I enjoyed seeing it. I know that this is a pretty common view of moss but that does not make any less pleasing to the eye 🙂

Tangled Woods

Looking deep into the damp woods of a welsh valley reveals quite a tangle of mossy branches. When walking through woodland I often get the urge to delve deeply into their interior, no matter how dense that may be. I wonder if the woods would feel this was an invasion or a connection?

Exploration like this is not such a great risk in Britain as it would be in other larger countries. However, that does not mean that the risk is not there, so don’t wander too far from the path folks!

At the End of the Walk

I often view this scene from the other side of the valley, on top of the hills. This view, on a sunny Autumn day, is from the end of my production walk through the woods I have featured in my posts throughout the past week.

The walk started soon after sunrise and this view was taken mid afternoon. I look forward to working on the post-production for the StillWalks video which will include some of the images I have posted .

Foreground and Background – What’s the Story

They say a good photo should tell a story. I like the story these images tell me but what story do they tell you?

They are just one chapter in the story of images I am presenting this week from Sunday to Sunday. They were taken as part of a StillWalks production day but as yet I have not had a chance to take this much further.

Pool of Sunlight – Moments of Magic

This is the kind of magical scene I would expect to see only in fantasy film. There are times in the real world when you’re in the right place at the right time and the real magic of the world is revealed. I have done virtually nothing to these photos other than take them!
