Dappled Shade With A Stream Or Woodland Path

This challenge closed almost 2 years ago.

The Challenge

Let’s all take advantage of this lovely spell of beautiful weather in this region and go out on a shady walk for a photo-shoot.

PLEASE READ THE CHALLENGE RULES AND THE ADDITIONAL INFORMATION (BELOW) BEFORE ENTERING. Thank you.

Find your best image of a shady place where the sun is peeping through where it can; places like a woodland walk or a river in woodland. No dense, unbroken shade please. We are looking for the prettiness of dappled sunlight in a shady place
(Cambridge Dictionary definition for DAPPLED is: “Covered with spots of colour that are lighter or darker than the main colour, or covered with areas of light and darkness”)

NO BUILT UP AREAS PLEASE.

No past winners please. see below

Your picture must be in the group gallery. see below

Additional Information

1. Your picture needs to be an image of a natural or cultivated place which is in dappled shade, and which also includes a stream or a pathway, for example, a woodland, an area of parkland, a garden by a stream, a shady stream and so on.
2. No built up areas please such as cities, towns or villages, although a cottage etc could be included as long as the other elements are present.
3. Your picture must be in the group. This challenge will be monitored a couple of days before voting begins. Any not in the group at that time will be removed as will any which do not meet the criteria for the challenge.
It is a sad fact that in every challenge there are 4 or 5 pictures which do not meet this rule. DON’T LET YOUR’S BE ONE OF THEM.
4. Please do not use a PAST WINNER OR JOINT WINNER in this group. Top Tens are ok.
5. Open to all members but if you hold multiple accounts please enter ONLY ONCE on ONE of your accounts. 
6. Open to all media
7. Please remember the rules, of which there are very few!
8. Challenges are for fun so go out and have a lovely day in the country to get some new shots (although ones already uploaded will also be fine)

GOOD LUCK to everyone.
