This to me is evocative of a cathedral aisle. It makes me feel very small standing in such grandeur.
The Forestry Commission are at this very moment felling the pine trees in parts of the woods. It has made a huge difference and brought light where there was darkness. Light enough to encourage all the seeds so long ago shed of our native broadleaf trees. I am looking forward to watching them grow without any further help from man. So far they have not touched these giants.
This is my favourite of these entries and I am considering entering it in the BP comp. I may be stretching your ideas of a path. In truth it is simply the middle of a wider row of trees than the other rows. It would easily be possible to walk down it but there is a well used path as an alternative. It is not straw but dead ferns.
