The ancient wood by LordLJCornellPhotos The ancient wood by LordLJCornellPhotos
This was taken in Wistman's Wood. It is ancient woodland of stunted oaks covered in moss and lichens as are the boulders laying thick on the ground. You have to be careful where you tread. 
This woodland is in Dartmoor National Park in Devon in the Southwest of England.

“Scarce hoarier seems the ancient Wood

Whose shivered trunks of age declare

What scath of tempests they have stood

In the rock’s crevice rooted there;

Yet still young foliage, fresh and fair,

Springs forth each mossy bough to dress,

And bid e’en Dartmoor’s valleys share

A Forest-wilderness“.

Sophie Dixon -1829

Beautiful! My husband took a class of kids walking and camping on the moor many years ago. They were from a school in the east end of London and many hadn't see a sheep or a cow.
