Second day Sunday 3rd November 2019
We had an early continental breakfast before leaving for Lacock.
Again we parked outside the pub and walked back up the hill to the studio. This second day was planned to be all the site visits for the course and the attendees would be taken to the sites in two cars. A rest from driving especially as neither of us knew this part of Wiltshire at all. Lunch would when we were at one of the sites.
The weather forecast for the day was for improving weather and after a cup of tea and a safety briefing we left for our day in Wiltshire.
The Devil’s Den
We drove past one of the chalk horses in Wiltshire on our way to the Devil’s Den. The cars were parked in a small lay-by and we all walked along the side of the A4 until we came to a unpaved lane.
We had about a mile walk up the lane. In places it was very muddy. Then we had our first view of the stones we passed a barn.
On our left was another more overgrown path after a gate and ahead of us were the stones. We all setup on our tripods and arranged ourselves around the stones.
In the Savermake Forest
The next stop was inside the Savermake Forest. Once off the main road we drove over a mile down the gravelled track deep into the forest. We stopped and took our pictures around the glades in the forest.
Then we turned and drove back out along the track for images looking up and down the track. The number of parked cars and walkers did rather restrict our views!
I did find it hard to find interest amongst the trees but after seeing Robert’s earlier images I knew that sometimes there were images to be had!
