#ScenicSaturday 20th May 2023

I share my pictures here to show the beauty of our world, encouraging viewers to take action to save it from the destruction we humans are causing to nature.
This was taken locally in the Forest of Dean, Gloucestershire, England, a place I walk almost daily with my wife. It’s a commercial forest run by Forestry England and open to the public to enjoy. We use it as an escape from a world steeped in political and environmental troubles mostly caused by human greed and complacency. It’s a place where we can and do commune with nature.


Please comment, like, and share to spread the joy of natural beauty to as many people as possible. It could help fight the rapidly approaching climate emergency and species extinctions.
I post these weekly, but also post one at the end of each day, with the hashtag #ourworldiswonderful, on FaceBook and on Twitter (until that platform becomes hostile for people who care about truth). Join me there if you wish.

Like one of my pictures on your wall? The images here are small, but 2,500 large HD images are here through Picfair as digital files, art quality prints on paper or canvas, or for use as book covers, calendars, greetings cards, jigsaws, advertising, editorial, or whatever else you fancy. The small fee helps me maintain and buy the gear and software quality digital photography needs. High prices attract only the wealthy in search of exclusivity, but I believe decorative artwork should be available to everyone.
A few more of my pictures also appear in the Gallery.

  2. A beautiful picture, Stuart, very lush. We have had an extremely hot, dry couple of months and some northern parts of the country are being walloped by forest fires. Much of N. America is covered in smoke from them. Terrible.,

    1. Thanks, Lynette. May in the UK is generally quite benign weatherwise. We experienced a longish period of heavy rain interspersed with warm dry periods this year, before May began. It’s left the ground quite muddy and the trees full of buds bursting into green luxuriance. The last few days have been unseasonably warm, however, so it’s beginning to feel like summer has arrived a little early.
