Beautiful. An enchanted forest.

I’m feeling a bit homesick too. This is just like a wood very near to where we used to live in the UK, near Bath. Absolutely stunning and one of the most beautiful sights in the world (in my humble opinion!).

Splendid shot, I love the verticalness (is there such a word?) of it. Must be really something to see in person.

We have walked these woods of blubells dozens of times. Our friends run an organic dairy farm and their land backs onto Badbury Wood. A beautiful carpet to see!
Is the photographer form that area?
