Today’s Pictures: 09 Mar 21

Misty avenue of firs.

‘Walking makes us take problems in our stride.’     Andy Hargreaves

Daily shots from our walks in the local forest will continue for the moment. I’ll include another photograph from my collection to provide a wider view of the world and its wonders.
Share on social media so more people stuck indoors due to Covid-19 can enjoy our natural beauty. Between us, we might also restore some love and respect for nature and help slow the damage we inflict on our world. Thank you.

  2. Love the misty trees, reminds me of, is it the Black Forest in Harry Potter? Of course, the beach scene is always a favorite. At three in the morning, I will wake up and remember the name. Thanks for posting such beautiful pictures.

    1. The Dark Forest of Harry Potter’s world was a little less regimented, I think. But I know what you mean, Brenda.
      The beach is part of the Jurassic Coast in Dorset and was featured in ITV’s Broadchurch. A short while ago, part of the sandstone cliffs colapsed! But the beach and the sea there remain great for bathers in sun and water.

    1. Thanks, Joni. We’ve lived in the forest for 6 years now, and this year has been the first I’ve had a real chance to capture some of that mist in my pictures. I love the air of mystery it conveys. It also deadens sound, so the forest is even more peaceful than usual. But it looks as though that’s all about to change; we’re forecast rain and gales over the next few days, so expect a few of our trees will fall, especially the silver/rough birch, many of which are reaching their natural age limit now.

      1. Oh how sad that some of the oldest usually fall. It makes me sad to know that. The Birch are so beautiful too. I bet it is really quiet out there when it is misty. Just gorgeous. Love to you two. Joni.
        I will schedule our post today for Thursday, to go live at 12:00 am, EST. Yea!!

        1. The birch are usually first to populate land that had been disturbed, Joni. They begin as ‘brush’ and grow to be trees over time. but their natural life span is usually around 100 years, when they fall and die to form mulch for other sturdier trees. And, of course, other birch will grow as well.
          Looking forward to Thursday’s post.
