Artist's Description

An image taken in an area of pine forest at King’s Tableland, Wentworth Falls, NSW, Australia.

When I took this shot I was initially interested in putting together a standard ‘contre jour’ style image.

What I found on doing post-production tweaking was that it had, in my humble opinion, a kind of dual feel to it.

The image has a comforting feeling to it on one hand and a rather menacing tone on the other. It seems to depend on your frame of mind when you view it.

I know this occurs with many images, though I think it particularly pronounced in this case.

Interestingly, if we consider the place of ‘forests’ in European folk-lore, they often appear in one or both of these contexts.

Certainly, my own experience of pine forests like this is that they can have both a feeling of beauty and creepiness at various times….or maybe it’s just me…
