I’m sure I mentioned last week that before visiting Chartwell, we went for a walk near Hever Castle, Kent. This follows the Eden Valley Walk from Hever to Hill Hoath Farm through the woods. Much of this track is the usual kind of woodland path, but a short section was rather more picturesque, and felt like it was cut through the rock. The light was also perfect for this kind of thing, with a bright overcast sky filtering through the leaves. There was a feeling of luminosity that you don’t always get in the woods.
This image was taken handheld as a single exposure. Processing involved some selective curves to increase the contrast and brighten the left-hand edge, which was in deeper shadow.
As always, I encourage you to click on the image for a larger version; comments welcome.
