Walking in the Woods

I enjoy walking through the woods. Whenever an opportunity to do so presents itself, I welcome it. There’s something so idyllic and peaceful about it. However, there’s also something a little strange about it. Many spaces in the woods have a wonderfully welcoming atmosphere about them, and lingering in them can be so uplifting and energising; but, there are also spaces that feel decidedly uncomfortable, disconcerting, even a little malevolent, and the feeling to get away is intense. Strange, I’ve never been able to understand this contradiction. It’s a mystery to me, and I’ve come to accept it like that – even been in awe of it at times.

My name is Don Scrooby and I live in The United Kingdom. I feel that more than anything else, nature, and the objective things around us, convey a speech and a message we always need to listen to and follow. This kind of listening is life-giving and there is a certain form spirituality about it. In this blog, through the the photographic image and accompanying words, I’ve tried to share this experience as simply as I can. There is an underlying beauty in nature we all need to see and experience, especially in this day and age as we struggle to save our planet. Most of my shots are taken with a Fujifilm XT100 camera and my Iphone. I’m no professional Photographer, but I do enjoy outdoor walks with my simple gear trying to capture what I see and experience.

  1. I get that also at times. Like your photo, when I get to areas that are thick with trees and it starts to look darker. I usually turn around and go else where. As if I dont want to disturb the silence of the forest.

  2. I guess that’s not dissimilar to me walking into a room and feeling lopsided, or uncomfortable. I can’t function in certain rooms. I feel instantly calm and enveloped in a warm cocoon in other rooms.
    The room discomfort is a Feng Shui thing 🙂

  3. Not everything is green, bright, clear and uplifting … just as life. Ego mind still clings to what it wants. Wiser mind embraces the reality…. and makes it okay … again and again. Thanks Don for sharing a new perspective 💛
