When the Light Breaks Through

When the sun’s light breaks through at Thrunton

Competition for sunlight among trees leads to a remarkably consistent pattern of tree sizes in woodlands. And all sorts of animals and plants that live in the shade of trees are also reliant on the sun breaking through the canopy at some times in order for them to survive.

And when it does break through…well, it causes you to stop and take a look.

Even the sun directs our gaze away from itself and to the life illumined by it.
