When coronavirus lockdown began to ease in the Spring, it became possible to travel a little further afield to walk unfamiliar lanes, lifting the sense of claustrophobia developing in the much-loved area around Totnes. This photograph was taken near Kingsbridge on one of the most magical days of a magical season, when Devon lanes were lined with white drifts of wild garlic, the shadows were luminous and the open fields blazed in the sun. Nothing quite captures this quality of light and shade like black and white photography which escapes the overlying distractions of colour.

As I walked more and more on the lanes around Totnes in the early days of coronavirus lockdown, I became acutely aware of the 'perspective invitation' to move forward to the vanishing point of gentle curves defined by high Devon hedgebanks receding into the distance. In April and early May the skies were often so clear that shadows became almost black because no light was reflected into them by clouds; and this made the shadows cast by trees dramatic and highly graphic. Black and white photography does full justice to such stark and beautiful lighting.
