This is steep country, Berend, so when the forest is harvested they are quick to windrow the debris (pictured) then replant with seedlings. A close examination will reveal that hoop pine seedlings have been planted out here (e.g. left foreground).
PS: I have been rejuvenated by the reassurance from Google.
The railway has gone Ian but I LIKE the picture anyway! Greetings Berend

Dear Ian, thank you very much! We've had a curious Spring, a change of unusual warm weather and lots of rain with rivers leaving their beds and at the moment it's unpleasant and cold, we're hoping for warmer Summer days.
Very best wishes from Switzerland, May
Ian, thank you, I am glad you like my logo! :)
Thank you, Ian! And time flies by without mercy... :)
Thank you so much Ian for your lovely compliments!
Warmest regards, May
Hello Jim, what an awesome secret place down in the shadows of the brook. And the sturdy stone bridge, maybe from Roman times? England has an aura of such a depth of history that our younger land doesn't have.
Congratulations on the beautiful colouring and atmosphere. L&F. You are one of my favourite photographers. Greetings from Australia, Heather.
