I decided to take a different path in an area I have been to many times on the chance I might find some new compositions. Not holding out much hope, I noticed this view further along the path in the distance and became more positive. The grey of the Beech tree trunk, the orange of the path and the green of the foliage and undergrowth demanded my attention.
Setting up the camera on the tripod, I used the electronic shutter with a 2-second delay to minimise the chance of vibration and the Olympus Live ND mode to capture motion in the leaves and to help reduce any noise. I have made a mental note to return in May to capture the bluebells that will be in bloom by then.
