This is the second week of six where I am looking back at walks I have taken in the past, this one features a much loved forest woodland which I have enjoyed many, many times and in all seasonal conditions. My walk this week focuses on images I took in May 2010 before I had my Canon DSLR cameras. That fact made the images I have selected harder to work with than I had expected – they almost all needed some adjustments and the one above is my favoured version of the colour shot in the gallery below. The monochrome version has also been submitted to Leanne Cole’s Monochrome Madness MM 4-5 blog post being published on Thursday this week.
The main thing that stands out to me in the majority of the photos taken on this walk is the strong textural focus of the images. There are few detail shots and while pattern is a noticeable element in some, in many others it is so complex with branches and light that the patterns themselves become a form of texture.
