“IF YOU GO INTO A FAR, FAR FOREST
AND GET VERY QUIET,
YOU’LL COME TO UNDERSTAND
THAT YOU’RE CONNECTED WITH EVERYTHNG "

Alan Watts

This is the drive to Blackbury camp in Devon, England (ancient Iron Age Site) – I was driving a very old car in a bumpy lane and it was misty and raining – so I thought I better take a photo to motivate me to carry on driving.
This was a special moment, and a moment in time, because I was alone on that road and it was enchantingly beautiful. I felt transported into a very peaceful place. It inspired me to return there a few more times, because driving down this road always gave me a fresh perspective.

I use a Lumix panasonic point and shoot camera

thankyou so much!

A self-taught, passionate photographer and writer – I love capturing beauty through the eyes of a camera. I have self-published 13 books, all non-fiction except one. My books are real life human interest topics that I feel are worthy of reflection.

  • Thanks so so much – I almost turned back because it felt a bit spooky and I didn’t know if my car would break down! Glad I carried on.

    Love the rich saturated colour … I can’t believe I’ve never been to this place … it’s on my list now to visit soon :)

  • Thankyou Susie, yes its off the road opposite the turning to Beer – I’ve only been there in winter with leaveless tree, and Springtime when the bluebells come out. I bet its gorgeous in Summer!
