Taking photos on a woodland walk

We are working on our next book set on an adventure in the woods at the moment. It’s a challenge given the little “free” time we have after work and family…and twitter of course!

We found a stunning ancient woodland the other day and took some snaps while out with the children. We’d already got together photos of a wood from previous adventures out, but many of the images were too dark and grainy. I guess I could have used a tripod and a decent camera, but part of the magic of writing these books is capturing family days out. It’s more about the composition and a feeling than taking an award winning photo. In any case these new snaps are looking great but I must have got a bit carried away as I now have to trawl through 150!
