Shadows in Gower Hey Woods

Here is where Gower Hey Brook disappears under a culvert near Swains Valley. It eventually emerges on the far side of Dowson Road.

See how it looked in Autumn 2009.

View the opposite direction on Hyde DP Xtra.

  1. That's an interesting cage around the concrete culvert. Such a lovely path for a walk!

  2. Great shadow shot for the day and what a lovely place to walk! Enjoy your weekend!


  3. Quite a contrast between the two photos. I love the little pops of green, as spring arrives!

  4. What a difference a couple of seasons makes! The almost spring view is tantalizing in that the warmer weather growth means that the seasonal change is nigh. The total green will be such a treat!

  5. A dungeone?

    The season really make open my thoughts. Look at the green grass compare to the dreary gray stones?
    With some whisk of sun rays? Fenomenal.

    Happy SSS,

  6. what a lovely place - shadowy woods in Spring seem to be such a lovely theme this week...

  7. what are the brick laying on the side from...was there a wall or walk way?? very shadowy path.

  8. Beautifully captured. Thank you for your beautiful contribution to Shadow Shot Sunday 2.

    Finding Beauty in a shadow. Have a blessed Sunday.


  9. Looks like a small wild animal's cage jammed between 2 concrete slabs! And looks like a lot of rubble has been left there - as if something was semi-built after ripping out all the ground cover in your earlier photo! The shadows give a lovely texture to the scene!

  10. Circa 1994 the culvert blocked and the water backing up in Gower Hey Woods caused a lake to form and paths became impassable. It took several weeks before the blockage was removed and the waters subsided.

  11. This looks like a place to go to get away from it all--except for the shadows, of course. You just can't get away from shadows, except in a pitch-black room!
