Rebirth of a woodland

In a woodlot nothing goes to waste. A fallen tree, last years leaves, dead fauna and other detritus from past storms all slowly rot, turn into humus and become rooting material for new growth. The decay provides nutrients for next years plants to grow another season. While a fallen tree takes time to decay it becomes shelter for newts, toads and snakes. The undergrowth gives shelter to box turtles and provides food for them too. What is really amazing is all this can be contained in an area no larger than 10,890 sq ft. That is ¼ acre, the size of your lawn. Open your eyes and enjoy what’s around you.Rebirth of a woodlandStudio work, The edge of my yard, Inman South Carolina 02/13/2016


About Vermont Woodchuck

Professional Photojournalist since 1969 with a BFA from SUNY Purchase 1979-Visual Arts. I despise advocacy news journalism. Every photojournalist should be prepared to show their camera RAW images of news events. Reason: RAW images cannot be altered no matter what is done to the finished product.
