Back to Bagley
Its starting to look distinctly like autumn at the Badley field near Wedmore in Somerset. Long shadows run across the ground early in the morning in August. Lower in the valley of the River Axe a think layer of mist is refusing to clear.
A golden brown light…
The top of the field is covered in curly dock. Its brown colours looking good in the early morning light.
The internet only seems to have two views of curly dock: one as a weed; and the other as a plant to forage as food.
Here something beat the foragers to it leaves.
But it is still summer and soon the golden hour gives way and the view is once again blue and green.
A roe deer appears in the distance and freezes as I try to get closer. This was as near as I got.
