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.

Hiatus over

It has been nearly two months since my last post on here, after keeping steady regular posts before that. I have been doing on and off freelance animations for Defected. I have also recently got really into gardening and have started a blog with my girlfriend, which you can see here – Chicken Atop A Pig.

To get back into the swing of things I have set a little project for myself. A while ago before I started my last year of the graphic design degree I wanted to do a kinetic typographic animation. I think now is the time to do it, whilst I continue to search for a full time job, preferably doing video editing, motion graphics or anything inbetween them.

I recently found a new artist who’s music I love. The singer/songwriter is called ‘A Fine Frenzy’. The song I have decided to do my kinetic typography piece to is called ‘The World Without You’. Which you can listen to below –

This blog should start getting posts regularly again, so stay tuned!
