The Cotswold Way - Day 13 - 23rd February 2018 - Dowdeswell Wood

24th February 2018
The Cotswold Way passes for barely half a mile along the western edge of Dowdeswell Wood. So for this stretch I diverted off The Way for a few hours into the wood to see what I could find. It’s an interesting mix of conifer/pine plantation as well as beech and several other deciduous trees all on the hillside of the Chelt River valley above Dowdeswell reservoir. In just a few weeks it will be carpeted with flowering bluebells and wild garlic. Some of the trees are very large. It was a challenge in the bright sun and deep shadows to find any worthwhile images. HDR came to the rescue with some bracketed exposures.
