When I head out to take some pictures I will often have a vague destination in mind but more often than not I will just walk and see what catches my eye. I have a number of woodlands I regularly go to but I am always expanding my locations in the hunt for something new, special, perfect. My images are rarely planned in detail, mostly they are the formed in the moment, dictated by the scene nature provides. I have found that true inspiration nearly always lays off the beaten track and so I tend to leave the path and head off into the heart of the woods. Sometimes it is a fruitless trip but sometimes I stumble across something that nature appears to have created just for me and so I set about trying to capture something of the essence of a place, how it makes me feel, how it sounds, how is smells, its suggestions of time and patience, its raw magical beauty. Some places are easier than others, some times it is easier than others, weather and light can ruin or alternatively make a picture. Some times, some places and me just come together perfectly.
