A Week in the Woods Seven days is a long time in changing winter conditions

From Sunday to Saturday I managed three visits to local woodlands, each very different in both weather and subject. I very much like woodland walks and have found these visits very fulfilling and reinvigorating. Here are a few of the images I made on these walks with the Nikon 50mm Ais 1.2 (except one)

Sunday started with a surprise dusting of snow
The woods near Douglas Water looked very different in these conditions
The smallest of saplings even stood out with their thin white jackets
Branches become intricate white veins
Tuesday took me from snow to Lichen
I noticed some low lying cloud engulfing a small woodland I hadn't explored before just outside Crawfordjohn and ventured in
Fallen wood was very brittle and the whole place was covered in Lichen
Dense patches of woodland were only breached by pockets of light from fallen trees weighed down by Lichen.
Cold mist hugged the deepest areas of this little woodland
On the outskirts of the woodland I made my only image with the Zeiss 25mm
A lovely woodland with a good variety of species in a very small space.
Saturday was cold as sleet and icy rain fell on Chatelherault Country Park
What colour that remained seemed to pop in the wet mirky conditions
Like a Ballerina, some trees danced between the more straight laced trunks
New growth burst through felled logs on the forest floor
There were some beautiful shapes in the woodland enhanced by many straight lines

So this was my week involving three visits to different woodlands all in South Lanarkshire. Each with its own character and each in very different weather. I found this to be a very enjoyable week in a landscape that in some ways I've neglected lately but one that has thoroughly recharged my batteries.
