I have recently taken to walking in the Surrey Hills. This is not to far from where I live, and is known as an area of outstanding beauty in the UK.
The following shots were taken over two days, one cloudy, the other, not so as you can see in the featured image.
Whilst the flowing hills are perhaps the main draw for most.
I concentrate more on the detail, for it is there I always think the real beauty lies. Whilst a stunning vista can take the breath away, to me the infinite beauty of the tiniest flower can have the same effect. Nature stuns us with the big picture, but doesn’t ever let up, maintaining it’s perfection down to the smallest details.
But lets start with the forest, equally beautiful in winter without its clothing as it is in summer in full regalia.
And looking closer we see such things.
And sometimes the man made parts blend in or compliment.
And I took the following attempting to capture the flowing countryside, but the cloud created to much shadow. I was taken though by the strong blue within the clouds to the left. This was visible at the time, not just a camera effect.
I hope you enjoyed.
