Spring canopy

The joys of Spring and my brother springing a photography challenge upon me! All very “Springy” you see! A friend of his on Facebook started a photo-a-day-for-seven-days challenge to someone, they then pass it on to another. A little bit of fun, Tim shared a great image of Lapsi in Malta and handed the baton to me…

I was a little bit pushed for time if I am being honest and that it had to be a new photo too. So I couldn’t just pull one from the archives. I chose to set off on my mountain bike into a nearby woodland park, called Queen Elizabeth Park, here in Farnborough and very close to home.

It dawned on me, why not grab a picture of the fresh Spring canopy of beautiful lush green leaves. It is not long before they start becoming darker and less translucent. Now is the best time to take lovely photos of them, no two ways about it!

Incidentally the park is one of the places I go to stretch my legs at any time of the year and it is mostly an old woodland which used to be part of Windsor Great Park around the time that Henry VIII was the King. Over time and with the development of neighbouring towns, it became cut off. This is especially interesting when you consider that the Crown Estate of Windsor is about 16 miles from Farnborough. It must have been collossal at one point in time.
