I’ve re-visited The Plantation that was the subject of my previous post ‘Discovering the Plantation‘, as I said I would. On this second visit there was intermittent sun and a patchy blue sky and I had an opportunity to explore this area a little further.
There are really three distinct plantings. One very large area – see above – is perhaps the most visually attractive but a little difficult to get around because it is infested with Brambles, but it has a lot of potential photographically. And it presents one face when the sun shines as it did in the first picture, and another when the sun is absent as seen below.
Both the two other areas of the Plantation have trees with slightly darker trunks and leaves that remain golden: almost autumnal in their colouring. These areas are also smaller and have a more intimate feel to them.
There is so much potential here, both at the taking stage and also in the options during processing. It is a place that I know I will return to regularly. And the joy for me is that it is less than fifteen minutes drive from home
For those in who live in Sussex (or adjoining counties), let me know if you are interested in visiting this site and I will send you details of where it is.
And a final note to thank all those of you who have kindly sent me ‘get well’ messages following my escapade with a ladder. I’ve managed to get through the last two days without painkillers and am making good progress. I’ve now used up several ‘lives’ with near misses of one sort or another over the years – not sure how many are left – but I will be a little more careful in future.
