Sessile Oak Tangle   Ariundle Woods, Ardnamurchan, Scotland

Another shot from this wonderfully tangled and sympathetically managed tangled sessile oak wood on the Ardnamurchan peninsula.  The forest floor just exudes a life force moss growth is rampant and a myriad of tiny creatures and woodland birds scurry and hop around, life oozes out in this oxygen rich environment.  This area features a moss covered ancient stone wall in addition to the tangled and twisted trees.  I found a small corridor of light to peer through with the wall acting as a guide and was fortunate to find a spot where little direct light was able to get through the canopy.
