I’ve found a new secret place. On a beautiful golden evening I took a walk down the dene and there it was. Waiting for me. In all its glory. The golden light beckoning me to follow it into its heavenly domain. And I took some pictures. And I felt so happy to have found this magical place. And I will visit it again. Because nature is a wonderful thing. It was here long before us. And it will be here long after us. It is endearing. It is calming. It is mighty. It is the world we live in. And we should cherish it.
I went down to the woods today, the wood in question being Castle Eden Dene. It is a place that I have known for most of my life having lived next door to it for around 40 plus years. As a child I would climb the trees and build dens and play hide and seek with my friends. So so many happy memories I have of this magical place. And now I am starting a new project, a one which will mean spending a lot of time in the wood. It is always exciting starting a new project but more so when you know you will be spending a lot of time somewhere that you love. I don’t know how the project will turn out, I don’t even know what type of photographs I will be taking. But it will be a glorious experience, that I do know, because how can one not love being out in nature, being somewhere that is over 10,000 years old, that will be around a long, long time after we are gone.
