Weekly Photo Challenge – Reflections

With christmas around the corner it was really fun to experiment with this weeks theme, with all the lights that are springing up you can get look at objects in different ways.

Dover Castle

This weeks adventures led Leanne and I to Dover Castle. A bitterly cold and grey day which made the lighting really flat, despite this we feel we got a few nice shots! We thought a castle would be cold being made out of stone…… but one small fire inside a room on each floor warmed the whole level,  giving the place a really nice aroma.

Blakes Wood

Hello! It has been quite some time since I last made a post, I hope to get back into the swing of things. My camera has been underappreciated lately so Leanne and I found a promising place to visit, Danbury Commons and Blakes Wood.

We  had a bit of trouble finding it, sat navs seems to have trouble picking up where a lot of nature reserves/parks are for some reason, maybe it’s just mine! Once finally getting there however the weather and lighting was extremly generous, georgeous lighting coming through the clouds most of the day (even if it did rain slightly from time to time!).

I go walking in parks a lot, but within the first five minutes of being in Blakes Wood we had two water voles run across our path, I have never seen one in the flesh before. Mushrooms were the key subject of the day for me. They are so interesting to photograph, they come in so many different weird shapes and sizes and to me they look other worldy.


All of the photos above show mushrooms growing over this very curious tree. It was completely hollow on the inside, it’s roots made a small circular set of stairs, moss covered the base of it’s trunk and mushrooms grew all over it.


Autumn is a great time for photography in forests, all the leaves change colour and plants and trees start to break down and die off, ready for new growth in the spring.


What post would be complete without some ‘Texture, texture!’.

If you would like these in full rez for any reason send me an email, and I would be more than happy to send them to you, chillcleal@hotmail.co.uk.
