Very nice exercise in (almost) abstract design!

Nice ones, Bill. They really evoke the sinister mood of everything I've ever read about Dartmoor (never been there yet).

The first one really illustrates the power of the wind!

We get a predominantly SW wind in SW England, and trees in exposed areas (south-west facing coastlines, high ground etc) get pretty battered at times. In parts of Cornwall, trees almost seem to grow horizontally.

As for Dartmoor being sinister - well, it's difficult to navigate at times, with lots of blanket bog (jump up & down & the ground wobbles beneath your feet) & mires, it's very exposed with precious little shelter anywhere, & prone to fogs, which adds to the aesthetic, or makes the place look a bit scary. But it's a wonderful, fascinating & beautiful place, with a higher concentration of stone age & bronze age archaeological sites than anywhere in western Europe. Worth a visit if you're in this part of the world.

Saw this image when I was looking for my Castle Rock shots. Some more sheep and a wattle tree from South Australia.



The countryside was quite green while I was there but as you can see it's never lush.

Exactly! I keep waiting for a football to come shooting out from one side or the other.
Nice one, Bill.

Two shots from a recent trip to the Cairngorm National Park in Scotland. The first one has small Scots Pine saplings poking through the heather, future replacements for the older trees behind. The natural Caledonian forest has take a battering over the years, not least from the hundreds of red deer that eat the seedlings & saplings. Extensive culling has reduced their numbers considerably, & now we are seeing a significant increase in Scots Pine regrowth.

The second shot contrasts mature Scots Pines with a couple of standing deadwood trees. Ironically, the latter probably support more life than the living ones. Without the deer cull, the ratio of dead to live trees would increase.

I went to the Chinese Friendship Garden in Sydney recently. Since it is winter here the garden was a bit bare but I took a few snaps of the bonsai.
