The Royal Oak – Richmond Park

The Royal Oak – Richmond Park – A stormy glimpse of an ancient friend.

Jo and I try to walk in Richmond Park as often as we can. Last Sunday afternoon there was changeable weather over the park and I was rewarded with this shot of the Royal Oak.
For those of you not from the United Kingdom. Richmond Park is a natural park:

“Richmond Park is London’s largest Royal Park and the largest urban park in Europe, covering an area of 2,500 acres. It is a National Nature Reserve and a Site of Special Scientific Interest, of both national and international importance for wildlife conservation.”

An excellent day with Chris Exner

Last week I had an excellent day with Chris Exner.

He needed various PR and professional shots for his up and coming 2022 projects.

We set about producing some lovely images that he could use across various media. Some business like and others adding a little more drama to the lighting.

The day whizzed by and we produced a variety of wonderful shots that you can see in the Chris’ folio on the website

The River Taw on Dartmoor, Devon, as it passes through Sticklepath.
After 17 months of strict lockdown here in the UK I have finally ventured out on a trip to Devon. I was mainly walking the beacons and Dartmoor itself, blowing away the many cobwebs that have gathered in my head, but I decided to snatch some images whilst walking. The weather was changeable but interesting.

Given that it is located in south west London, Richmond Park is constantly amazing to me.
I can walk across vast swathes of grasslands all the way to Putney, enjoying the seasonal chirping of Skylarks nesting amongst the tall dry grasslands, or through natural Oak and chestnut woods, through lush valleys and densely wooded hills…

What have the Romans ever done for us? – The barley twist trunk of the sweet chestnut tree…

So winter is most definitely here.

All of the leaves are now on the ground and most of the Oak trees in Richmond Park are now bare. So nothing to see then?

This sunday, Jo and I happened upon this beautiful bare tree. It’s reddy bark was glowing in the midday sun. It stands alone amid a copse of Oak. It’s an indication of the rarity of the sweet chestnut tree in the UK that neither of us have ever seen such an ordered structure of twisted bark? It spirals up the trunk like a Narwal tusk, or an aniseed twist sweet, perfectly twisted.
