A painting of Sunrise at Black Knowl Brokenhurst New Forest UK
61x122cm by Rob Miller RSA

Black Knowl heath land lies on the outskirts of Brokenhurst it is a fine place to be painting early in the morning when the suns first shaft of light glitters through the ancient  trees.  I imagine this to be true whatever the time of year.  As with all forests the New Forest  morning nothing stirs except a sigh as a breeze caused by the release of  oxygen from the the trees stirs the leafs  awakening birdlife and deer who graze peacefully.   All this quiet despite the hoards of Londoners fresh from the city still sleeping by the hot  embers of their barbeques in the caravan site. This amazing wild place of  beauty shows the importance of our national parks in conserving our national treasure, especially so in the current climate of fracking and land exploitation. More details on the New Forest can be found  in an article by the Independent Newspaper
