I’ve not posted on here for quite some time (four months apparently, having checked my last post) and there’s a reason for that – a new venture that’s occupied a lot of my time over the past two or three months.
After visiting an exhibition of images by talented Surrey based photographer Rachael Talibart, I was inspired to visit the Wey Navigation for a sunrise shoot. Visions of mist rolling over the water bathed in soft dawn light filled my head as I headed out early one morning a few days later. Turning off the A3 took me past Wisley Common where I noticed low lying mist through the trees, so it looked promising.
However, at the river the mist was hardly present, just a few thin swirls in small patches. So I headed back to Wisley Common, the draw of the mist being too great for a simple photographer to ignore.
Seems like all I’m doing lately is photographing bluebells, but I suppose it is the season for it.
This year I decided to travel further than my back garden in search of bluebells. Internet research showed a couple of promising locations in Surrey within about 45 minutes drive from home.
So I started exploring in late March and weekly thereafter to check on progress. Places such as Ranmore Common, White Down, Leith Hill and Hatchlands Park.
