Old man of the forest

When we were over in England earlier this year, we visited Sherwood Forest, the legendary haunt of Robin Hood and his band of merry men. Besides seeing the Major Oak, purported to be the outlaw’s secret hiding place, I came upon this carved tree trunk, which I think is perfect forΒ  Nancy’s Photo a Week challenge ‘Wood’.

  1. sembra proprio un vecchissimo spirito del bosco, che da un attimo all’altro possa animarsi e prendere vita! Speriamo possa proteggerci da tutti coloro che vogliono distruggere le foreste

  2. I would love to wander the woods where Robin Hood and his merry men created their mischief. Coming across this old man of the forest would have made me smile.
    P.S. And that IS one major oak!!
