As I walk along the shore, I grab a shot of the colours and shapes of the woodland fringes of silver birch.

As I approach the forest there is an overwhelming feeling of stillness – a sense of calm and serenity has descended on a scene that only two days ago was frantic and chaotic.  I decide not to use intentional camera movement nor to blur the images but attempt to capture the stillness.

I work with double exposures playing with aperture, shutter speed and point of focus.  I hope the two images, over-layed in camera, will emphasise the lack of movement, capture the intensity of the colours and give depth to the forest.  Although some of the locations are similar to previous images produced this week, I think those captured today give a wholly different feel.

I move onto a different location of deeper forest, where the canopy shades much of the trees and the floor has little vegetation.

This final shot I think is successful in giving a sense of how dense this part of the forest is.
