One from last autumn on a wonderfully foggy day. It was taken from the car park at the top of Porter Clough on the outskirts of Sheffield. I took a digital version of the same scene, but also grabbed this shot with the Sure Shot that I had with me as well.

Another photo from my outing in the Peak District the other week. I took a few shots of this area of silver birch with my DSLR, but grabbed a shot with the Yashica Mat too. Unfortunately, it seems the batch of film I was using was one that had faults and so the print from the backing paper has shown up on a number of pictures – especially in low detail areas such as the sky. I think I’ve manged to remove it reasonably well in Photoshop though.

A partial tree still stands in the centre of the plantation.

This was taken back in January on a walk where I wish I’d worn some Wellies – although the ground looks crisp and frozen, the snow was in melt and my feet were sinking up to the ankles in places.

Another shot from the small pine plantation I found a few weeks back. No snow on the ground this time. I’d estimate the plantation is no more than 100m square.

The term ‘forest’ in the title up there is somewhat misleading. This is actually a small plantation of pines nestled into a meander of the River Rother not far from Eckington. It’s a place I’ve never visited before, but it has potential for some nice photos – it certainly did on the snowy, misty day when this photo was taken.
