The Prehen Woods is a small wooded parkland area close to Derry City, Northern Ireland. It has taken constant campaigning by local residents to protect the woods from threats of clearance for housing.

Once again the bulldozers and chain saws entered the Prehen Woods in February, 2012, to destroy another corner of the woods to make way for more houses. A local campaign: No to housing development in Prehen Woods has a Facebook page and an online petition.

It is an ancient woodland dating back to 1600. The entire wood has “Tree Preservation Order” status. It is managed by The Woodland Trust.
Prints and cards of photographs of Prehen Woods and Derry are available from my Redbubble pages.
Shot with a Canon EOS 5D, with a Zenitar 16mm fisheye f/2.8 lens. The camera was mounted on a Kaiden Kiwi panorama adapter on a Manfrotto 190XDB tripod.

Horizontal photographs were taken at 60° angles and also two ground and one sky shot. Each "shot" consisted of three bracketed exposures.

A total of 27 separate images were combined using Hugin in order to achieve this High Dynamic Range-type result.
