To the Pines

The forest was thick with the deliciously dizzying pine smell fresh in the air after the night rain. We trod quietly, watched by the odd grazing sheep or pig who were happy to call the pine needle covered floors their home. Trees twenty times the height of us had blown down in the storms, their roots bare and facing skywards suddenly showing how the ancient gentle giants of the forest could so easily be picked up like matchsticks. The Sun shone in intervals warming our backs and sending funny tingles down our spines, it felt strange to feel it on our skin again after so long. We walked homewards and through a graveyard on the corner of the woodland where the newest headstone shone brightly and it made us realise; like the trees, we all share the same ground and it's kind of wonderful in a funny way.

          1. There was a pine forest like this near my house, it was so beautiful. But someone cut all the trees down and ruined it :( It made me so sad! These are beautiful simple photos! <3

                  2. I've been stuck in the city lately and it is just so refreshing to see your pictures of the forest. It's funny, but even though we are on different sides of the ocean, these trees look so familiar. I feel as if I have walked among the same pines.
                    1. That's so lovely to hear that it could be like a small escape for you; sometimes living in a city can feel so claustrophobic. Perhaps you have walked the same pines? Afterall, all trees come from the same ground, maybe they're all related to one another across the World! [:

                  5. There is something so majestic about forests, and its so difficult to capture in the frame of a photo. You have done it perfectly

                  9. These are wonderful.. I really loved the tall trees of the forest, they look like they belong in a children's tale. You are so lucky to enjoy the solitude that place offers, and you definitely are making the best of it. I like every single one of the photographs.
                    1. Thank you so much, Ceren! There is something so wonderful about the solitude of these places, whether you're alone or with others, it rejuvenates you and fills you with all sorts of happiness.

                  13. Really beautiful photos! Forests are such an adventure when walking through them. I don't belive I have ever found a pig or a sheep in the forest! Especially a sheep! But it really looks that it belongs there. [:
                    1. Thank you, Simona! It was so lovely to see the animals there, they seemed so relaxed by just seeing us pop up from a hill! Unfortunately the pig got a bit camera shy and hid behind a tree so we didn't want to upset him by trying to get any closer, maybe next time!
