Can't see the wood for the trees

By Nettles  
Taken just a short walk up a VERY steep hill, I came across this view where the forest lay in front of me. A few weeks earlier and this would not have been possible to see.
The small leaf trees have now mostly shed their leaves and the view through the trunks is of the pine trees, which the forest is mainly planted with.
The forest spreads over 8,000 acres and has 55 miles of cycle trails, lots for people to do and is a great day out, although you do have to pay £7 to go into the forest.
Thanks for your kind comments on yesterdays upload, they were all much appreciated.
It's grey, wet and misserable here and the concrete for the foundations of our extension are being poured in the full on rain !
Thanks for stopping to look.

The leaves are falling fast here too. I like the hazy larch in this, it's worth a picture in its own right. (My favourite tree, though Monty Python half-spoiled it for me...)

Definitely a shot where the thumbnail doesn't do it justice - looks better the bigger you go. Very nicely spotted and caught.

Good woodland scene - surprising how some trees drop faster than others and also vary in speed across the country.
P.S. I'm not that dedicated, lol.
