Poland is a special country. I have visited several times and have good friends and indeed family from the country. In 2016 I had the pleasure of visiting Białowieża Forest in the north-eastern part of the country, close to the border with Belarus. Below are some of the images I captured on that trip.

Białowieża Forest is a precious natural landscape of ancient oak trees and deep, largely untroubled woodlands. My friend and I managed to see seven species of woodpecker in a couple of days. Białowieża is a one of Europe’s most precious woodlands. It must be protected indefinitely from over-zealous logging and ecologically-illiterate management practices.
