Originally, I’m from the north of England. The photos below show the type of the scenery I grew up with.   I’m hoping to bring alive some of the bleakness in my second novel, a psychological thriller.  The gist of the story is this: the central character Alan Holmes has recently moved to the north of England from London following the break up of his marriage.  Within a few days of arriving, he meets a childhood friend.  Flashbacks of an incident in the local woods follow, along with growing menace.

  1. good luck with the writing, Lawrence,
    can;t help myself, I still love spooky forest scenes….must be traces of being an 80s child and all those films in the forest.

  2. Good choice for setting if bleak is your intention… like the way you frame your shots. Nice work!
