Ecclesall Woods

First Sign of Spring

Ecclesall Woods, Sheffield, South Yorkshire

It’s almost the end of March and a visit to Ecclesall Woods in Sheffield is like stepping back in to Autumn. There are only a few signs that Spring is upon us.

Woodland Gold

It’s late March and we’re in the early stages of Spring, yet some of our woodland landscapes still look as if we’re deep in the throws of Autumn.

Autumn Leaves

A few more shots from my expedition to the woodland in Graves Park at the start of November. This time taking a closer look at the leaves and woodland foliage.

Autumn Woodland

Autumn is upon us once more. I wanted to capture some of this years autumn colours in their glory and what better place to do this than in woodland so I decided to explore the woodland within nearby Graves Park. The park has so much to offer all year round, from the grassy lawns, woodland and animal park it makes it the perfect place to capture nature throughout the seasons.

I had attempted some photos earlier in the year of the woodland, but they did not not turn out as good as I had hoped. The woodland thrives in Autumn an is more atmospheric showcasing the many different colours and hues of Autumn.

Under the canopy of the trees the woodland can be quite dark, which is why my previous attempt did not fair so well as this endeavour. On this occasion I to captured a few different subjects which I shall share in later posts.

I feel quite lucky that we stay so close to Graves Park, no longer have to trek to the other side of the city. All in all feel lucky that we are surrounded by much more parks etc than where we lived before. As much as living in the city has it benefits it is nice to be able to withdraw to a less urban environment.

I feel I shall have many more photographic expeditions to Graves Park during the various seasons to capture what this natural wonderland has to offer.

Claire: Indian Shoot

I had the opportunity to work with Claire.C again, the first model that I had worked with. Since our first shoot had went so well and she had seen other shoots that I had done since working with her last she wanted to do a second shoot with me.Think we planned things a bit more for this shoot, so wasn’t as go with the flow as our first shoot had been. We had a bit more of a plan what we wanted to achieve. We had decided on doing a Indian theme (as in Cowboys and Indians).

Claire picked the location for the shoot, Dunottar woods, she could not have picked a better location if she had tried. As it was ideal for the theme we had picked. Plus it’s just an awesome location, I never knew it existed and definitely want to do another shoot there sometime with a model but also some nature shots.

Thankfully we got great weather again for the outdoor shoot. We did two costume changes one more casual before doing the Indian themed shots.

It was another great shoot, and as always Claire makes her shoot so effortless and we got some amazing shots though I do say so myself.
