A couple of mornings ago a friend and I got up early ( 4:00 am ) and drove up to Hatfield Forest near Stansted Airport to catch the dawn. And what a morning it was! A mist hung across the whole lake when we arrived, and then the sun rose and the mist struggled to survive – but was eventually dissipated by the increasing temperature.
Here is just a sample of the images we captured.

Light In The Forest
We must go back!!!
We took advantage of the good weather today and visited Hatfield Forest, just off the M11 in Essex. If you haven’t been – go there. If you are a photographer and you haven’t been there – go there at least twice!!
Also found in Hatfield Forest. A quick scan of my fungi book suggests that this is a Magpie Ink Cap, but identifying these things is very difficult. So if you know better, please let me know.
Hi. Not been around too much this week. I lost my Mac computer for some essential repairs, and I’ve only just got myself back on line.
Anyway, I found these in Hatfield Forest. Lovely colours and textures – in a beautiful location!
A grey autumn afternoon, and rowing boats on the lake at Hatfield Forest.
It looked like some small creature had got to this equally small fungi ( less than a couple of inches across ) and had a good feed before abandoning the empty carcass.
Taken this afternoon in Hatfield Forest, Essex, using the macro setting on my Nikon P100, ISO400 1/1000 sec at f/2.8.
These two images were both taken in Hatfield Forest, just after dawn. A little experimental perhaps, both images involving longish exposures and movements of the camera – the first moving the camera up and down to take in the whole height of the trees ( 0.6 sec exposure ), the second zooming the lens during the 0.4 second exposure.
