Cathedral of Trees

Sunbursts and Forests

I believe sunbursts are best enjoyed among trees. If the stems are of similar quality, creating an even pattern, they often turn a stretch of forest into a cathedral of natural build, or a dancing hall for elves and other forest creatures, letting loose one’s imagination. In Gisburn Forest, the sun makes a full appearance after nine in mid October, just as the Zika deer’s calls disperse and the scent of rich earth and wet bark rise under the intensifying light.
