                                      Oxleas 365

 

With travel so limited for most of the year I decided to focus on seeing the beauty in my local wood. They say all of London is a forest and this group of woods known as Oxleas Woods on the edge of London has survived since 1311. Sandwiched between housing estates, railways and busy roads 72 hectares of oak, hornbeam, silver birch and wild service trees have provided fun, play, solace, a place to run, walk dogs and for some the odd smoke!
I run with my dog Buddy through the woods most mornings and then play with Buddy on the encircled Heath most evenings. This routine has enabled me to see the familiar through a lens this year in all weathers and at all times of day.
Oxleas 365 is my tribute to a place that keeps me sane, fit and uplifted each time I go.
