Another picture from the Rahoy Hills nature reserve artist in residency (or, rather, artist in absence) project as described in the text for the picture titled “Oaks in Gleann Dubh, Morvern, Scotland (1)” (on the Trees – 1 page). Fallen dead wood is not only an important habitat within woodland but also has a lot of visual interest with its textures (which can be smooth or with many long, straight, narrow grooves) and colours (including patches of mosses and liverworts growing as a thin coating on the log surface). The fallen dead wood here is in a setting of mossy temperate rainforest.
