United Kingdom Rockford Common
- Please to see the GPS coordinates & weather for this photo spot
Rockford Common is a large, flat open area of heathland with grazing New Forest ponies where you can make typically epic New Forest images. To the north of the common is a valley with higher ground beyond so this is the best direction for a panoramic image.
Late summer when heather is in bloom is a great time to shoot this location, but if sky conditions are good you can make interesting images year round, every season brings different colours.
Easy to get to, quite a large car park at the west end of the common but very busy in the summer. Smaller but less busy car park at the east end (Appleslade)
