In the woodland - Fiorentini forest

Yes, another woodland!!

In Sardinia, unfortunately, we haven't got many woodlands and only a few are still well protected, someones are really ancient, but the majority part has been rebuilt in some way. One of them is this one, Fiorentini forest, even though, after all, is gorgeous. It has a lot of different kind of trees, a few very tall, maybe over 40 meters, but you can find oak trees, holm oaks and pines.

When I was going around the woodland I come across a marvellous tree. It was very interesting, with a big hole inside the trunk, but also really challenging to photograph. In fact, I don't know if I managed to capture the beauty of the tree. You have the word to say it.

The worse aspect of this picture, in my opinion, was the flat light; there wasn't the sunlight so everything was still in the shade, even that tree. Thinking over, I'd like to get back again, but during the sunset, in order to have a warm and better light.

Moving on in a different place finally, I've got the light!! And what a light! It was making a lot of different colours and making sunstroke everywhere, like in this picture:

where the sun lit the branches.

Taking pictures of trees is not as easy as I thought, and often I had to change composition, or lens in order to have a different view of the tree, but I never was happy or fully satisfied of the result. The last picture has been taken near a group of rocks, where a particular tree grew close to them. The aspect that attracted me was the small life living on it: some very little plants and green moss, with this result:

I don't know how it is: good or bad, but I enjoyed staying in the woodland because I get relaxed and walked for a while. Nature for me is always a source of inspiration, and even though I'm not convinced of those pictures, I'm looking forward to getting back really soon, maybe with the snow, or at least I hope so.

Recently I started to shot some video, so you can see it from my YouTube channel, or watching here. Enjoy you and I hope to see you again in these pages.
