Which might be the correct option to go with? I'm utterly confused and I haven't found the right answer anywhere. Please answer it with explanation.

A) I walked in the trees, looking at the sunlight falling through the leaves above me.

B) I walked around the tress, looking at the sunlight falling through the leaves above me.

I say the second sentence is correct.

The first sentence is with "in", therefore "in" would possibly be misinterpreted to be walking "inside" a tree.

But if I where you. I would prefer to say:

I walked in the forest, looking at the sunlight falling through the leaves above me.

Or "between":

I walked between the trees, looking at the sunlight falling through the leaves above me.

Or also with "among":

I walked among the trees, looking at the sunlight falling through the leaves above me.

  • Is among or between more appropriate then around?

  • @ApuAhmed Yes, they are. Oct 1, 2021 at 4:35
  • If I use among, doesn't it mean that trees are walking with me?

  • @ApuAhmed No, "among" means that you're walking and there are a trees surrounding you, which is what you want here. Oct 1, 2021 at 4:38
