Green Fronds and White Trunks on an August Afternoon

Is it the oxygen in a fern woodland that makes it feel so special? Do the fronds soften and reflect sound to  offer a ‘soothing silence’? It may be a combination of silence, oxygenated air, or the relief one gets from leaving an open hot sunlit field to enter a shady woodland. Whatever ever it is, as soon as I set foot within this fern glade I noticed that I took a deep breath and slowed my pace to stand in admiration. Fascinated by the pattern of upright trunks emerging from the thick ferns taking me into the distance and the lichen spotted trunks and moss covered rocks near my feet, I took this photo to share the wonder of the place that I found so special that late August afternoon.  010-wl-fern-woodland
