I love photographing paths, either paths that lead through darkness into light or paths under trees with dappled shadows.
To me paths create a sense of mystery and anticiption and curiosity as to where they lead.
I have not had time to go out and take a ‘new’ path photograph. Apart from anything else the weather is very unsettled but I do have several ‘path’ photographs in the archive. So I have chosen one that I showed you before in a St. Catherine’s Hill post but originally it was square and here I have cropped it to a 3:2 format which I think is even better. If you walk from Winchester to St. Catherine’s Hill, the last part takes you along by the river on one of two paths. There is a narrow, possibly muddy, path right alongside the water and a wider, higher, tarmac path where you can hardly see the water because of the screen of trees and bushes.
This photograph was taken returning from St Catherine’s Hill, walking towards Winchester. I am sure you can see which of the two paths it is!
