This is impressive – a great, solid wall of greenery, with those strong, dark, uncompromising trunks. 🙂

Thank you, Adrian. It really does look flat, doesn’t it—like a wall.

The vastness of a deep wood is a magical sight but it is not easy to capture photographically – I know, I’ve tried. But this is beautiful result and the colours are so rich.

I’ve tried also, and failed, but maybe for these I’ve tried harder at the processing stage. I have taken photographs of this very part of the woods before, with unremarkable results. What always appeals to me is the backlighting. The trees are backlit because there is a gap in front of them caused by the river. All the dark areas you see in the bottom third of the frame are the rock cliffs on the other side of the river.

Now there’s a happy place with transcendent light! I like looking at the branches, all those overlapping greens. Is that the river behind the trees?

Yes, that is where the river is. That’s how I get all that backlight.
