Wistman's Wood

Wistman's Wood
Photo Information
Peering through the anthropomorphic limbs of the enchanting Wistman's Wood Dartmoor. Stunted Sessile Oaks, festooned with epiphytic ferns, moss and liverworts. The Wistman is said to have rode through these woods at night looking for lost travellers upon the moors.

This Nature Reserve and Site of Special Scientific Interest lies in East Dart Valley, in Dartmoor National Park

Remember the swamp in the Flash Gordon film? This is it

Nice work, Phil

Looks like the place has been taken over by giant Anacondas

Best regards
Peter

Many thanks Peter 😊 Was glad of the company of a couple of friends on this visit in the liminal hour! It's air of wildness is particularly palpable in the late twilight, when alone in that wood... the German word Waldeinsamkeit sums it up well 😊

We stopped for lunch in a wood similar to that when walking on Dartmoor. You have captured the essence of the place perfectly. I was glad to move on.

I'm sure I saw a gossamer wing briefly display itself from behind one of those limbs! Gorgeous shot!

Lovely entangled moss covered branches and rocks, Imps abound methinks!
Kind regards Maria
