In the Stillness of the Forest by 

Saturday morning, the weather very nice with sunshine and no winds at all. At this time of year this is very rare, and usually opens possibilities for mist.
I arrived at the forest, there was not another soul in sight. How I wonder why people are in such a hurry to go shopping or whatever, when they could have enjoyed a stroll here!

Shot on the Danish island of Bornholm.

    I often wonder the same about people when i’m out on my own too (although I guess most of them are still in bed).

    This is magnificent – This is the kind of shot I dream of getting when I go into my woods but never seem to get.

    I love the way the light is streaming through the trees giving that ray approach and the path up the middle is very easy on the eye.

    The tones in the shot are very peaceful and it looks like a magnificent place to take a stroll and breathe in that glorious early morning air.

  • Thank you very much, Stuart. Your nice and encouraging comments are greatly appreciated.
    Yes, sights like these are very rare, I’d say around once a year. And then you’ll have to be there!

    Wonderful shot again Kofoed! I too was out in a local wood this weekend….I may post some shots later……lovely light and composition again buddy!

  • Thank you very much, Simon. Your comments are always appreciated. Maybe even more so when there are trees in, nobody can treat them as you do.
    Looking forward to see yours.

    You are spoiling us Kofoed, I think I prefer this one, I like the way the rays are slatted, it also reminds of the many early mornings in Spain on my camino. Great work.

  • Spoiling you, John?
    Thanks a lot for your nice comments. Thanks also a lot for favouriting this. I’m honoured.
