Photowalk To Tockhole Woodland


I had organised two trips to this location covering Saturday 22nd and Sunday 23rd November. Due to a weather forecast of persistent rain on the Sunday morning, which did materialise, I cancelled the Sunday walk. This was so disappointing particularly as we had a clear blue sky on Saturday. On Saturday morning 14 members met in the car park before walking down a dark tree lined avenue. The sun was so low in the sky it pierced the trees only to cast light on the woodland to our right. Our next photo opportunity was taking images of the autumn colours with a stream running through the scene and close up images of the flora. On previous visits I’ve never noticed the fungi on the trees and the woodland floor, but our group certainly found plenty of examples. After a pleasant walk we returned to the car park a little later than I’d planned. I hope the group enjoyed the experience, it’s an area I go back to each autumn.
