#ScenicSaturday 18/Feb/2023

I share these pictures, from February (though not this year), to show #ourworldiswonderful. This shot, from 2021, depicts a view from one of the surfaced roads that follow old tramways and railway lines through the Forest of Dean. It’s many years since that industrial work ceased, although there remain a tiny number of free mines. The forest is a commercial plantation managed by Forestry England for timber. But is open to the public for walking, horse-riding and biking. There are lots of well-marked walks with many less obvious routes through the trees, often following tracks made by deer and wild boar. This shot caught my eye as winter sunshine lit up bare trees to turn them silver against shadowed trees in the background.


Feel free to comment, like, and share these to spread the joy of natural beauty to as many people as possible. It might persuade others to join the cause for nature and help fight the fast-approaching climate emergency and species extinctions.
These posts are weekly, but I also Tweet (until Elon Musk makes the platform unusable for people who care about truth) one at the end of each day, with the hashtag #ourworldiswonderful, join me there if you wish.

If you fancy any of my images on your wall, they’re available through Picfair as art quality prints on paper or canvas, or as digital files for book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, editorial, or whatever else you want. You’ll find around 2,500 here. The small fee helps me maintain and buy the gear and software quality digital photography needs. I dislike exclusivity-driven high prices and think everyone should be able to afford decorative artwork. A few of my pictures also appear in my Gallery.
