This series of images reflects the interplay and importance of light in woodland areas of the UK.  The trees harvest the light and transform it into energy - not just for themselves; they are power stations for the whole ecosystem of which we are a part. There is more life in these places than in the busiest city.  Countless life forms connected together in a delicate balance of dependency.  Remarkably even the trees themselves are connected with one another through unseen root systems.  
On the edge of the woods we find boundaries where the light either finds its way into the body of trees or emerges sometimes with spectacular force.  Likewise the canopy can provide a stencil for shaping the light into delicate patters or into columns forming pools in the clearings.
