Into the woods, part two

"Los Osos Oaks Preserve", sepiaJumbo

I think people who don't know the woods very well sometimes imagine it as a kind of undifferentiated mass of greenery, an endless continuation of the wall of trees they see lining the road. And I think they wonder how it could hold anyone's interest for very long, being all so much the same. But in truth I have a list of a hundred places in my own town I haven't been yet. ... So many glades; so little time. - Bill McKibben

More photographs from Los Osos Oaks.  There's so much to see in this little glade.  These images go beyond the lichen drapery, focusing on lush ground cover and the contorted shapes of some of these venerable old specimens.  Black and white, and sepia tones, help bring out the dreamy quality of this enchanted forest.
