Essex Wood: September
Just finished yesterday afternoon – Essex Wood: September.
This is down near the southern edge of the wood, in fact only a few yards from the little kissing gate which I painted in Essex Wood: August. At this point there are a number of gaps in the tree line, like the one shown here, where it is possible to climb out into the field. I liked the way the dappled sun lit up the mossy trunks of these big oaks and made splashes of light on the path, and also the contrast between the foreground detail and the distant stubble fields.
I made my October visit to the wood yesterday, taking advantage of the lovely mild sunny morning – I’ll post some photos later! 🙂
