An English Oak Woodland in November – textures and colours

David Beeson, 7th November

Oaks and bracken (fern)
While oaks dominate, it is a mixed woodland with birches filling any spaces. Birch numbers are declining.
Silver birch grove.
Not all tree trucks are brown.
Not any tree trunks are brown! Algae, lichens and mosses coat the surfaces.
Hazel leaf. The male catkins are already showing – giving us a clue that spring is ahead.
Spindle berries.
Oak acorns are in abundance this year.

And, yes, as it was a dull day, and I wished to raise your spirits, so the images have been enhanced a bit.
