Today’s Pictures: 3 Aug 20

Young(ish) oaks growing in the Forest of Dean.

If you’re unable to get outdoors to enjoy nature at present, this series is for you. I’m aiming to brighten the days by posting pictures of natural beauty.

Storm clouds over Rhosilli Bay, Wales. Photo taken in September 2019.

On the other hand, if you can go where you like, perhaps you’ll do what you can for those less fortunate by sharing this widely, so others can enjoy it? Thank you.

  2. The oaks, and that sky over the beach. I reminds me of a couple of lines from Robert Frost’s Once by the Pacific: The clouds were low and hairy in the skies/Like locks blown forward in the gleam of eyes.

  3. Your young(ish) oaks are amazing, with twisting, long straight branches that protect that gorgeous ancient forest from erosion and other things. It definitely looks like a storm is brewing in you photograph of the clouds over Rhosilli Bay, which is beautiful by the way. Stuart these are lovely, thank you as always for sharing. Sending our love to the two of you my friends. Have a blessed day. Love and Hugs Joni

    1. Thanks, Joni. I love the way nature finds ways to maximise the gathering of energy for life. The twisted, long branches are the result of planting trees that require space too close together. But, I suspect, they originally didn’t expect them all to mature, so planted more than were required for the plot. My guess is that the trees in this patch of the forest are around 100/150 years old, so quite young for oaks.
      We were very lucky when we stayed a week in the hotel at Rhosilli, as our room overlooked the bay. We were able to watch all the different weather from brilliant sunshine to dark, brooding storms, and everything in between. The only thing we never had all week was a windless day! So, lots of atmosphere to capture.
      Thanks for your comments, Joni. I really appreciate them.
