This is one of those personal ones. Some locations are selected for their grandeur and what they evoke, this is the opposite. Borsdane Wood in Hindley was chosen because it’s the site of one of my happiest memories. As a child my grandfather and I would walk miles around the parks, rivers and woods near their house. In the middle of summer we were walking through this very wood when we were caught in a sudden, incredibly heavy storm. My grandfather picked some of the huge dock leaves that grew near the river and we used these as umbrellas for the entire walk home. This is shot among the foliage where they dock leaves grow by the river. Helped by Naomi to lug the equipment onto a dry river bank.
