My ways and by-ways -There’s mud in them there woods

This morning dawned very cold and grim, foggy with not much light about. The perfect time for a squelch down to the woods. Just a five minute walk from my house is Owlers Wood which is up, and Rotcher Wood which is down.

After seeing what I could photograph (for atmosphere, if nothing else) in poor light conditions, and not doing too badly under the circumstances, the sun is now out and the sky is gleaming as I prepare this for posting. Flippin’ typical. Here are some photos, see what you think.

Still a bit flummoxed about Panoramic setting on camera??? It does look best in fullscreen.

Good job I put my big boots on. Spent most of my time in squidgier stuff than this!

And looking directly up…as if the trees had composed themselves for me.

I found a full screen of filigree branches and chunky silhouetted trunks might look quite interesting enlarged

A couple of these images will be posted to Instagram. Some were taken on my camera, others on my phone Sony Experia Miro.
