The photo series 'Follow the Light: A Year in Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds’ explores the ancient woodland throughout the changing of the seasons.


Exploring the ancient woodland of Epping Forest and the sprawling waterways of Hollow Ponds is good for the soul whatever time of the year. And in the extraordinary year of 2020, the forest and ponds bordering London and Essex provided the photographer Caro Jones with a place of tranquility and calm amongst the chaos of the outside world.  Caro started documenting Epping Forest in the first lockdown in the Spring of 2020. As part of her daily exercise she would go to the forest, camera in hand to take photos of the woodland and the bright yellow gorse fields. She decided to document the changing of the seasons throughout the year with summer, autumn and winter and saw how the landscape changed. Wandering between aged oaks and fields of spiky yellow gorse, she was inspired to pursue her interest in photography and document the changing cycles of the seasons from the warm, dry spring to the chilly winter days in the woodland. The bright yellow gorse fell away to reveal prickly bushes, the trees were now bare and stark and the sun would set low in the winter afternoon.  She put a selection of her favourite images together in a photobook 'Follow the Light: A Year in Epping Forest and Hollow Ponds'.  Discovering the beauty of nature through photography has positively benefited her mental well-being and she hopes that people will find inspiration through her photographs of this special and unique place.
