There is a section at the end of Davidstow Woods that my wife and I always jokingly call ‘Apocalypse Woods’. For some reason, the stand of trees there is just a collection of mostly dead but still upright trunks, standing in a boggy section of ground that is slowly regenerating around it, and so that section is reminiscent of a bomb-ravaged WW1 battlefield. In fact, the Davidstow Airfield itself is a WW2 remnant.
Recently, the Forestry Commission managing the woods covering the old airfield have made this section more accessible, with an access road heading to it, so I was able to get in and wonder about to try some photographs.
I thought that the strong graphic verticals of the stark trunks might suit the intentional movement technique, so I set about trying that out.
It’s a bit dark and moody, but that is how I was feeling when editing it, and I think it suits the title anyway.
A not-very-subtle reminder that I have shops, at
Redbubble and Pixels,
where there are a selection of my images in all sorts of buying options
(Art, Canvas and Framed prints, and the popular greetings cards and notebooks)
It only takes a couple of small sales to keep the site ad-free, so do have a look if you have time. Thanks.
