Any patch of sunlight in a wood will show you something about the sun which you will never get from reading books on astronomy. These pure and spontaneous pleasures are ‘patches of Godlight’ in the woods of our experience.” C S Lewis

Photo by Exhibit A who, from his position, couldn’t see the woman walking up the path to my patch of Godlight! Eek! Also, Honey, this area of Epping Forest is known at The Ditches, so I had to have ‘one for the ditch’ didn’t I?! 

Sinful Sunday

  1. Oh – I’m catching my breath. This is such a powerful image. It’s dark and captivating and reminds me of an old fairy tale. I’m not sure why, but there’s something that feels a bit sinister to me in this image… and I love it.

    • She was walking towards me as the photo was taken and then slowed down to peer in the bushes as I was getting dressed. She was probably worried about what on earth was going on but was trying to hide as she looked!


  2. Your photograph makes me think about al fresco sex. I’ve been a very rare participant since leaving school, but our parents gave us little option but to experience wild sex when we were still at school.

    As an adult my only experience was in a Spanish street. We were out of sight, but only just.

    When Peter and I were teen lovers all of our al fresco adventures were within a short distance of where we now live as pensioners. I think we might have to go back to one of those locations and square the circle this summer.

    Will report back. LOL.

    Meantime do keep producing your delightful images.
