magical forest

Many different cultures have held beliefs that include the awareness of spirits in the woods. The Lord of the Rings used this to create a world of mystery and intrigue. Often I can empathize with those who were convinced of the existence of spirits in the forests. This is one reason I love to seek out the remarkable in the forest.

This gallery shows some of the evidence of what I have found there.

Tangled Treetops

Sometimes I see a sort of agony in nature as with these stunted trees which were twisted and turned by the constant influence of ocean breezes.
