Two woodland scenes – 150 years apart

The picture below left  is a copy of a postcard of Forest Scene, by Constant Alexandre Famin, c 1865, from the National Gallery of Art, Washington.  Apparently it’s an ‘albumen print from collodion negative mounted on blue paper’.

However, it’s remarkably similar to the photo (below right) which I took last Sunday in the Summerheath Woods near Turville, Bucks!
