Travel Photo Friday - On Golden Pond

This week Travel Lightbulb's selections have both come from the UK - I featured The Witchery on Monday, and Tanner Farm on Wednesday. So it was only fitting that I stayed with that theme for today's photo. It comes courtesy of Deborah Stafford, so I'll hand over to Deborah to explain more about the location.

We're lucky to live close to the New Forest National Park in Hampshire and this photo was taken on a Sunday afternoon walk at Hatchet Pond, just outside the village of Beaulieu. The pond is on the edge of Beaulieu Heath, a vast expanse of heather and gorse towards the south of the forest. It's a popular spot for walkers, horse riders and photographers keen to capture the brilliant orange sunset which bathes the pond in the late January afternoon. There is a free car park beside the pond, and plenty of tea shops a couple of miles down the road in Beaulieu where you can go to warm up after a bracing walk around the pond. 

There are more stories about places and attractions around the New Forest on the New Forest PodVisits iPhone app which can be downloaded by clicking here.

Thanks to Deborah for her fabulous contribution, and if you'd like to share your own photo please send your photo to the email address on my contact page, with a short description of where it was taken.
