To finish my Week of Woodland Wallpaper, I’ve picked this shot from last year’s holiday in Barmouth.
When I was a kid (which wasn’t all that long ago), you could go and wander through real woodlands and the remains of once mighty forests, where the trees were native species that grew where they could in whatever higgledy piggledy layout they wanted. Today, no matter where you go, most of the woods today where people can go and walk are managed plantations, where all the trees have been laid out roughly in alignment. They’re great fun to walk through, but I miss real woods too.
I hope you’ve enjoyed this week’s woodland theme. I haven’t made up my mind yet, but I’m leaning towards picking out some of the shots from last year’s holiday in North Wales (which I’ve recently uploaded to my Flickr account) for next week’s theme. If you’d like to suggest a theme for future weeks, please do get in touch.
Have a great weekend, and I hope you’ll be back on Monday for more daily desktop wallpaper.
