Exploring the paths of Elsenham

My walk this morning took me along many paths I’ve never explored before. The village is bordered by both the M11 motorway and the railway line, so I was half expecting to come to a dead end at some point. To my delight though I discovered several underpasses and tunnels, taking me alongside the railway and under the motorway. It was in one of these that I found some very recent graffiti. I can tell it’s new from the reference to the country’s current obsession with buying as many toilet rolls as possible!

Another path led me through a wonderfully rough-hewn tunnel of corrugated iron, which I just knew would offer some great photographic opportunities. I had to combine five different exposures to make the most of this texture, but I think it was worth the effort!

Finally, as I headed for home, I encountered a particularly fearless blue tit along one of the lanes. I didn’t seem in the least bit bothered by my presence and continued foraging for bugs among the blackthorn flowers.
