Footpath through Dodd Wood, Bassenthwaite by 

I set off for a walk from Dodd Wood car park near Bassenthwaite with my wife and daughter early one autumn morning. The air was crisp but a blanket of mist hung heavy over the trees. An odd glimpse of blue sky promised a fine, sunny day ahead. As we walked along the path shafts of sunlight began to fall to earth through the trees lighting up the damp autumn foliage. I managed a few quick shots before the shafts quickly disappeared and the sun broke through.

What I most like about this shot is the way that the footpath curves away into the distance so that you can’t see where it goes to. It’s always nice to leave something to the imagination and allow someone to create their own journey either real or imagined.

Canon EOS 20D, Canon 24–85mm lens, 1/100 sec @ f11, ISO200, no filter

I am a professional landscape photographer specialising in images of the English Lake District, Scotland, Northern England and the USA.

I sell my work on-line from my website exhibit in galleries and hold occasional exhibitions in Keswick and the North-West of England.

I supply images for calendars, websites, books, magazines and brochures and contribute to stock libraries.
