Reclaimed ground

Abandoned van door surrounded by woods

Nature has a way of reclaiming lost ground. This photograph was taken while staying just outside Norwich, near a wood that was dotted with abandoned vehicles just rusting away. It just seemed such a waste; many of these vehicles would be prized by collectors looking for a new renovation project. Nothing had been done to hold back nature, so gradually, the long bracon and grass were taking over.

This image was taken on a medium format Bronica ETRS using Fuji Velvia 50 transparency film. Velvia 50 is no longer made but a Velvia 100 version is still available. Very nice it is too !
