#ScenicSaturday 27/Aug/22

Ancient beech trees line a track in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England. I walk these woods daily with my wife. We value them, their beauty, their amazing variety, their ability to give us spiritual renewal, their peace, and their contribution to the continuation of life on Earth as they produce life-giving oxygen and devour climate-damaging carbon dioxide. These are more than ‘just trees’. They sustain life on a planet humanity has systematically raped, damaged, and taken for granted for centuries. When we wander through these magnificent sentinels we feel gratitude, wonder and a special love for their constant presence.


I’m posting a weekly photograph of our wonderful world here, but I’m also Tweeting one each day, with the hashtag #ourworldiswonderful, join me there if you wish. Sometimes, my posts on here include words. I hope you’ll continue to comment, like, and share these to spread the joy of natural beauty to as many people as possible. It just might persuade some to join the cause and fight the coming climate emergency and species extinction.

More pictures appear in the Gallery.
Over 2300 of my images here for whatever you fancy online, or as art quality prints to decorate a room or for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, or whatever else you need.
The small fee helps me maintain and buy equipment and software quality digital photography demands. Everyone should be able to afford my work, I loathe the exclusivity of high prices.

    1. It’s no longer tinder dry, Noelle, but we need a lot more of the wet stuff to bring our reservoirs and water table back to normal levels. We’ve had a couple of days of drizzle and just one or two showers. Next week is forecast to be dry and warm again. How about you?


      1. We have also had a dry summer but the heat led to some thunderstorms and rain. Not enough, though, and we are now heading into the dry part of the year. We are water-rationed unless we water by hand.

            1. You’ll have to dance harder, Noelle; nothing happening yet. Mind you, they are threatening us with possible thunder storms over the weekend, so fingers crossed!
