If you saw my previous post, all about fashion, you’ll have seen the photos were taken in the woods. But as much as I went to take these, I also went because it was a lovely summers day! The woods of choice was in Hockley, a little town in Essex.
It’s a really cool place because there’s a lot of diversity in the scenery of the place. One minute you’re in thick foresty surroundings, and then you walk a little further and there’s some interesting tree or stream. I realise how flipping boring I sound, calling a tree interesting, but when you’re looking for photo spots, everything becomes a little more cool!
I was constantly changing clothes on this walk, so as to get the desired shots for ‘Approaching Autumn..’,so don’t think I’m weird that my clothes may change in shots! We spent a good two hours just walking round and enjoying nature…
I may be 21, but at heart I’m still a child, so every log that I could balance along, I bloody well did!
I even attempted to climb a tree, though old age has made me wary of getting my white t-shirt dirty, and I didn’t want any injuries! But it’s always nice to get back out there with nature- I’ve spent a lot of summer indoors, or at least in built up towns!
After we’d exhausted the photos and the countless trees, we headed to a nearby pub, called the Bull. It has a massive beer garden which backs on to the woods, which sounds great, but inside it was just your standard chain pub, so nothing to write home about there… However, I decided to try a summer special beer- the ‘Bermuda Joe’ which was a golden ale with a pineapple twist. It was kind of delicious, but also kind of gross. I don’t really know what I thought of it…
So there we are! Just a quick post today, because honestly, how much can you say about walking round a woods.. I meant to take my glass prism and attempt to get some cool photography with it, but yeah.. I forgot… Maybe, I’ll go back before summers over and I’m back up to Hertfordshire…
Anyway, thanks for reading- as always! Don’t forget to follow me on here, and my social media to!
One thought on “Woodland Walking…”
There is always something so settling and always worth talking about on walks in the woods. Cool post!
