Leading to Light
This last year, the restrictions in movement had quite limited my opportunities as a landscape photographer. However, this also meant that I had the chance to learn something new and that is when I decided to give it a go to forest photography. It was a new challenge but I immensely loved the new experience. The unexpected scenes to explore and newer compositions to capture was really thrilling. Vacationing in the Black forest area this spring, I had the chance to explore the famed jungles of Germany and capture as many images as I could. And image here is one of the newer creations of mine: as a big lover of ferns, this image here holds a special place in my heart especially as I could capture the fern leaves pointing towards the sun as the small stream led to the light.
