Rother footbridge in the mist

A companion shot to yesterdays trees in the mist. You can see that same copse of trees on the other side of the footbridge, but this shot was made before the ones posted yesterday. I collapsed the tripod down to get the low point of view.

  1. Nice frame. And there’s a copse…..I’ve always loved that word! It’s not in common usage here, at all. From time to time you’ll see it in charming storybooks for children, like William Steig’s Shrek. I use it from time to time. Is it more regular lexicon in UK?


    1. It *feels* like a commong term here in the UK, although I guess it’s rather dependent on if you’re discussing small stands of trees in a conversation. It’s the word I use, although “spinney” is another that gets chosen from time-to-time too.

      I remember as a small boy reading a short story about a child being pursued through a wood by a creature formed from a skeleton covered in mold and fungus. I can’t recall the name of the story or the author, or even the plot points beyond the main theme, but as the word “copse” is only a single letter away from “corpse”, it’s something that seems to pop into mind whenever I hear the word. Odd how things like this stick…
