I live in the middle of a row of old terraced cottages , when I leave the house and turn left Im on the beach in under a  minute, if I turn right, Im in the woods in under a minute...on a misty morning this creates a bit of a dilemma..

I love the beach but I also love the woods, in the early morning it has such a special peaceful atmosphere. Theres a stream running through which adds to the feeling that you aren't in a Cornish wood as it can get very humid and feel very tropical . The stretch I love is the area close to the village where I live in Portreath. Theres a little dip down from the path to the stream where this tree is, its one of my favourite trees for its shape. I use a tripod and a Canon 6D for shot like this, the mud by the bank holds the tripod very still, and my boots as well if I stay there for too long, very squelchy sometimes freeing yourself from it. Happy to lose a whole morning here..

Beautiful monochromatic capture, @Melanie Collie, and the mist adds loads of mood to it.
