    I had a really great day with work on Wednesday, I went to Moccas Park and saw some incredible ancient trees! Just wanted to share.

    The short squat little fella is 'the old man of Moccas'

    The fourth one is a giant ash tree.

    I saw lots of beetles most of which I could identify but one which I couldn't so let me know if there are any entomologists amongst you and if so i'll post a picture of it.

    The final picture isn't in Moccas it's called the Great Oak and even has it's own road sign pointing people to it. It's hollow and you could get about 8 people in there easily.

    Thank you both, yeah I love the shapes too. The old man of Moccas is a really squat tree because as he has aged he's also shrunk (height wise) and grown round the middle just like people do lol!

    It was just one of those days that sometimes you really need in order to re-inspire you and so I very much enjoyed it.

    Never heard of Moccas, where is it?

    Nice pictures. I much prefer trees in winter, you can see the shapes properly.

    It's in Herefordshire, there are some wonderful old trees in Herefordshire, lots of old orchards too. I like wintry trees too especially when the branches are thick with snow, makes them look amazing.

    Thank you! Trees seem to be a recurring theme in my pictures :)
