Going for a walk…

Words/Photographs: Tony Eveling

Walkers in a snow covered Epping Forest, Essex, England, UK

I dug this photo out after visiting the photofriday website….with this weeks topic of ‘on a walk’. I knew I had this image but was surprised I had not uploaded it to this blog.

Anyway, here it is, and it was taken in March 2013, when, instead of the temperature beginning to rise into double figures due to it being the beginning of spring….the temperature instead went down to minus 10 degrees…which is crazy for this time of year in the south of England.

It was however, a fantastic opportunity to photograph Epping Forest covered in such deep snow. I love the silent atmosphere of snow scenes, which I presume happens because the snow adsorbs so much ambient sound.

This was taken with a 100mm lens and is a multiple image stitched panoramic. I saw this image in my minds eye, and the only way to take it without seriously cropping a single image, was to create a multiple image panoramic and stitch it in Hugin software.
