I have a favourite place to go where I can (almost) get lost in the woods and which, fortunately, is also quite nearby. It's a place where you're unlikely to encounter many, if any, people.You can wander about, lost in thoughts, camera in hand and see an almost pristine environment.
I think formerly, before the word took on a negative connotation, it would have been called a swamp. Now it's known as a wetland, but it isn't managed, as yet. There are no signed paths and I suspect very few people are even aware of its existence - I wasn't till I found it by accident after I'd lived here for 5 years ! I like it that way.
I drove down the one lane 'unmanaged, use at own risk' road, parked, and wandered about this afternoon. A great place for reflections and reflecting. I couldn't keep all the images to myself.
