My desktop wallpaper today continues my theme celebrating the magical Beyond The Border international storytelling festival. (If you’ve never been, the next one is in 2012).
Part of the magic of the Beyond The Border festival is the walk to and from the camping field (which doubles as the festival car park). The walk takes you under trees and through a field and down the hill towards Atlantic College and the Jousting Field.
The trees are somehow bewitching, and every year that I go I make a new attempt at capturing their magic. This year, by chance I picked the one day where the light was utterly flat, which I think has created an image where the eye is drawn to the detail trailing off into the distance because the colours are so uniform.
If you’re reading this in the RSS feed, my original blog post also includes a Google map showing where this photo was taken. Unfortunately I haven’t managed to get the map to appear yet in the RSS feed, so for now you’ll have to click through to my blog if you want to see the map. Sorry.
