In a dark wood

Somerset beeches

Certain places have a habit of plucking my sleeve, drawing me back time and again to capture them in different lights and different seasons. I have photographed these beech trees several times over the years and never caught exactly what I saw in them.

In my head, perhaps because of the low sweeping boughs, I saw a wild wood or fairy tale forest, something dangerous, unpredictable, full of the unknown and a bit constricting.

I had another go recently and, this time, with some better post processing, I felt I got closer to what I saw in my head.
