Last week me and Hollie took a trip into the countryside, we drove through forests and hills, and passed through numerous small towns and villages. We had a loose plan and stopped off at a nice little pub somewhere in the Forest of Bowland. We had a lovely beer called Double Nelson but sadly the food wasn't up to much. Never the less we did have a nice day.
Joerg Marx's Field project fits in quite nicely with this recent trip into the greens. Marx's work takes you through some of the more simple things in life, be that trips into the woods, farmer's fields, the beach nature. This project takes the viewer through the fields of an undisclosed location via some rolling lines & curves and extreme close ups. The North of England isn't quite like this but it definitely does equal its natural beauty.
In under half and hour from where I live I can be in the countryside, if you drive 20 minutes from where you live where do you end up?

For anyone reading this that doesn't live in the UK; our country is quite sparse other than the major cities and towns, from my house you can be in the countryside after a 20 minute drive and it has to be said we don't take enough advantage of this.
