Weekly Photograph Challenge: Numbers

Photograph taken in Wyre Forest Worcestershire, 26 square miles of managed and unmanaged woodland.

These trees recently felled and numbered. I have no idea what the numbers represent; length, weight, destination or numbers for the lottery next weekend. Who knows. The presence of the numbers gives the the scene a certain gravitas. Why magenta/peppermint pink colour on the stub end of the felled trunks? Beautiful all the same…

    Cool shot!

  3. I always feel sad when I see felled tree’s, and especially tree’s stacked up, like corpses ready to be carted off and turned into, whatever….To me the numbers are like prisoners numbers.

      Gosh that never occurred to me but you are quite right, the trees have forfeited life… Never again to feel the warmth of the sun and nourishing rain. Thanks

    Yo know I’m going to ask you what are the trees?
