Trees in the mist at Frensham Little Pond

Old Man of the Woods

Frensham Forest A few weeks ago I was out with Haslemere District Cubs for the annual Muir Trophy. The Muir Trophy is a competition for Cub Packs from the Haslemere district, they compete in teams against each other using map skills to find their way and scoring points on incident bases along the way. I was […]

Winkworth Arboretum

An amazing location for autumn colours and this year has to be one of the best autumns for a long time. Created by Wilfrid Fox in the 1930s Winkworth has a unique collection of unusual and rare species of trees, shrubs […]

Frensham Little Pond in Autumn Mist

Frensham Little Pond

Vanishing into the mist… Another misty morning at Frensham Pond on the way to the Wisetiger office. The lake is a magical place in the mist, the view disappears into nothingness – it could be the edge of the world for all we know! And the other eerie thing is the silence. Even the birds fall […]

Frensham Forest Hankley Common

At the edge of the forest

Like an advancing army coming over the top of the hill Trees at Frensham, at the edge of the woods. Simple composition, in 1/3rds 🙂 The photo is on Flickr and 500px. Shot on my Nikon D7100 through a Nikkor 16-85mm lens at ƒ/5.6, 1/125th sec, ISO 200.

Snow at Frensham Forest

Pine trees in the snow near Frensham, Surrey

Snow in the Surrey woods More snow flurries this week. These pine trees at Frensham could be deep in the Alps not Surrey! I enjoyed composing this shot. The snow on the ground makes a big difference to the light under the trees, and making the most out of the foreground has created the impression that the […]

Frensham Little Pond

Snow on the reed beds at Frensham Little Pond, Surrey

Frensham Little Pond

Snow on the water at Frensham Little Pond

Frensham Little Pond in the snow And how strange was this? The snow at Frensham Little Pond was literally floating on top of the water. There’s wasn’t any ice on the lake – the snow that had fallen overnight had formed a Slush Puppy mush, and as more snow fell it just settled on top […]

Thursley Common Boardwalk

Frosty morning on the boardwalk at Thursley Common Bog

It was very cold this morning! Crikey it was cold this morning! The good thing about the cold weather is that the water in the wooden boardwalk had turned into frost making the boards look white. Who’d have thought this was a boggy heath in Surrey – could have been Scotland! Maybe that’s why they […]

Elstead Moat Surrey

The Moat at Elstead

Cold feet The fishing deck at The Moat, near Elstead in Surrey. That’s frost on the decking and I had my feet in the water! Note to self, take wellington boots next time… Nikon D7100, Nikkor 10-24mm, ƒ/6.3 1/160 sec ISO 200. Thanks for looking. This photo along with many others is also on Flickr and […]

Frensham Little Pond Surrey

Reflections of Frensham Little Pond

Flat as a Millpond Frensham Little Pond in the mist on a still November morning. Very quiet! I often stop at Frensham on the way to work for a bit of peace and quiet, it’s a beautiful place that’s always changing. Shot on my Nikon D7100, with a Nikkor 16-85mm lens at ƒ/4.0, 1/80th second, ISO 160. This […]
