The ancient trees of Hatfield Forest

 “Hatfield Forest is a rare surviving example of a medieval royal hunting Forest, with over 1,000 acres of coppices and wood pasture. It has a rich and varied history stretching back over 2000 years through to the present day.”  So, there are lots of very old trees in the forest and I find the textures and shapes very interesting. The one thing I am looking for is great light. Hatfield Forest's website.

Hatfield Forest

There are a number of dead trees in the forest, one in particular has a very interesting texture. It won’t be long before this tree either falls down or is taken down by the NT. Because it had been raining for a day or so it was bringing out the colour in the trunk.
