Woodland morning light changes significantly with the seasons.
In spring and early summer new leaves on many of our familiar trees have a distinct brighter shade of green (see below). In autumn the same leaves cast altogether different shades of colour in the morning sunlight. And in winter, bright sunshine easily finds its way onto the woodland floor, reflecting warm colours off autumn’s fallen leaves.
I’ve been walking through the same woods and on the same paths since my childhood. Although I’m alone now, I still take pleasure in the subtle shades of light that each season brings. Often I’ll carry a camera and try to capture the changes I see.
