At night the forest becomes a very different place. Creatures that are not noticed during the day become active and the whole place comes alive. It is perhaps one of the many reasons why I like to pay a visit to my favourite forest in the
This particular night, I was not alone in the forest. A man walking his dogs appeared from out of the tree-line. I got a hell of a fright just seeing this silhouette (over 6 feet tall) appear though when we passed pleasantries I tried my best to hide it. 🙂
On the drive out, I made a recording using my dashcam. It shows the complete lack of light and although there is also an annoying rattle on the video, (which I think is internal to the camera as I couldn’t hear it when the recording was made), it really does give a feel of just how dark it was.
Nearer to the exit, the ground was warm and a mist was hugging the road surface. That really did give it a feel of being straight out of a Hammer Horror film. So with doors firmly locked, I made my way out and headed home.
I don’t think the video captures anything unusual and the date-stamp on the camera is most definitely wrong, but I do think it gives a reasonable picture of what it is like in the darkness.
