The human spirit needs places where nature has not been rearranged by the hand of man ~Author unknown
When you walk down this path, the trees line up like soldiers to ensure safe passage.
Their trunks are tinged with green moss, their ancient roots poke out through the undergrowth like creeping fingers. They tower above you. They’ve seen it all. Over many many many years.
This is one of my most favourite places to walk with the family and the dog. We’ve been going here for so many years the whole place feels like an old friend. Like a comfortable blanket.
We know each canopy, the best off-piste routes to take, where the mud is deepest, where the fallen trees offer the best places to climb and explore.
I have a deep love of trees. And walking in these woods is the best medicine I know.
The dog is a big fan too!

➤ Take a photo using the theme I’ve given as your inspiration. There are no rules and you can interpret the theme any way you like.
➤ Now share your photo. Write a blog post using your photo. You can write as many or as few words as you choose, but you should use your photo as the inspiration. You don’t even need to use a new photo; it can be something from your archives. Just a photo which you think represents the prompt.
➤ Add the Photo Gallery badge (and the foot of this post) to your post so other readers can find the other entries.
➤ Add a link to your post using the linky tool below. The linky stays open until Tuesday so you have plenty of time to join in.

➤ The Photo Gallery isn’t about taking technically brilliant photos. You can take them on your phone, your point and shoot or your fancy pants camera. It’s about having a passion for photos, wanting to better yourself and discovering what other bloggers are doing.
