#ScenicSaturday 15/Oct/22

This month, all photographs in the series were taken in October, though not necessarily this year. My digital pictures go back to when I bought my first DSLR camera quite a few years back, and I like to share them.
This image is from my home forest, the Forest of Dean in Gloucestershire, England. Parts of the forest have been used as locations for major films, the Harry Potter series, Star Wars, and the TV series, Merlin among others.
The shot is of a narrow valley that leads from the hills down to Greathough Brook where there is a large enclosed area for some beavers, installed to help protect the village further down from occasional flooding. I’ve yet to spot the beavers, but their work can be seen as we walk beside the fence around their sanctuary. The valley is part of a relatively regular walk, the lower of a pair of such vales, mostly lined with oaks, and both quite steep descents. The photograph was taken last year in the middle of October, just as the bracken was starting to turn. The trees had yet to adopt their autumn colours, but the low sunlight attracted me as we passed through.


I’m posting a weekly photograph of our wonderful world here, but I’m also Tweeting one each day, with the hashtag #ourworldiswonderful, join me there if you wish, you’ll find me here. I hope you’ll comment, like, and share these to spread the joy of natural beauty to as many people as possible. It just might persuade some to join the cause and fight the coming climate emergency and species extinction.

More pictures appear in the Gallery.
Find over 2400 of my images here for whatever you fancy online, or as art quality prints to decorate a room, office, den, or for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or whatever else you need.
The small fee helps me maintain and buy equipment and software that quality digital photography demands. Everyone should be able to afford artwork, I loathe the exclusivity of high prices.

    1. Thanks, Lynette. It’s on one of our favourite walks, but we’ve had to avoid it for the past few weeks as the very end of the path was clogged with bracken and bramble briars. Took some secateurs with us and opened it back up again!

    1. Yes, Noelle, Robbie Coltrane was a much-loved and well respected actor, who appeared in a lot of TV drama here as well as the films. He’ll be sadly missed.
