Woodland Exercise

By LynneJoyce  
A selection of images taken on our one daily jaunt during the lockdown, a very early morning walk around Hirst Woods. These were all taken with one or other of my compacts because I am not yet brave/foolhardy enough to take the big kit out while managing my two Border Collies, Ansel (two and a half) and Alfred (almost five months).

Hirst Woods has been selected for our daily exercise because it is the nearest place where I can walk Ansel, Alfred and myself whilst being able to maintain a safe distance from other people.

Getting there before 7a.m. ensures that there are very few people around anyway but it does mean that we have had to endure some early morning frosts (V1) but the cold was worth it to get the lovely, early morning light and long shadows.

As ever the exif applies only to the first shot. Others were taken with the Sony and the Panasonic.

Thank you for viewing and I hope that you enjoy at least some of these images.

Amazing images Lynne.
And then you throw in 2 border collies, and make it even better.

An absolute pleasure to view, Lynne - your early starts have presented you with wonderful photo opportunities, of which you have taken full advantage!!
An outstanding set of images and, if I had to choose a favourite, which I have, it's V12 - Ansel and Alfred seem to be getting on very well indeed.Smile

Too many images to comment on all those wonderful finds in your woods.
You are probably fed up with just your local woods but there is so much of interest
and beauty in there. You're making me long for a walk somewhere further from home.
