Kingley Vale

A fun family trip to Kingley Vale yesterday, on what may prove to be the final truly hot day of the year. Kingley Vale, in West Sussex, is famous for its big, dark, ancient yews, but this photo is of a much younger oak.

Where a canopy of dominant trees hogs the light, younger trees fight for their small share. This can often be seen, almost felt, in the shape of their branches.
