Light on Tree - Woodland Walk and nice light on tree

Woodland Evening Light

I always like unusual lighting conditions and on a recent woodland walk I noticed a tree which was being lit in spots thanks to the overhead canopy and surrounding trees filtering the light.

The one below is the photo which I think represented […]
