Stockhill Forestry

My regular dog walking area is in an area of woodland owned by the Forestry Commission, which means that it is managed and cropped on a regular basis and is not there just for recreational purposes.

I take loads of photos when I walk there, especially in the mornings when the light is low, streaming through the trees. My favorite areas are those which haven't been touched by machinery for a long time, where the ground is mossy and soft.

There is always something new to photograph and I love watching the seasons change. It would make a great project to follow the changes through the year and maybe make a photobook. You can see some of my photos at Mendip Hills Photography

New Camera :D
by: Anonymous

Hi Caroline,

I had my birthday this weekend and got a lovely new digital SLR (Canon 500D). The school term ends in a few weeks and I'm looking forward to some great days up there, hopefully early mornings and the evening light too.

Huge learning curve but so much fun. I've just been loaned a telephoto lens from my dads old film SLR - it goes up to 400mm!!

Beautiful photos...

Hi Caroline, first of all let me say I love your photos. It is something I have a real itch to get into - a decent camera is on my birthday wishlist for this year.

You are quite right about using the early morning light, and evenings. I hope to spend a few nights camping out this autumn so should get some of those chances.

Incidentally, this is the perfect time for a bit of mushroom foraging if you are out in the woods regularly. You might get lucky and find something great.
