Dramatic Pic, The highlight of this photo is sunlight comes to darker side of trees. This photo remembering us we are in illusion or we are arrived in another unknown world.
This place seems magical in the way the light is captured against the trees. It's almost like I'm waiting for a creature to move out of the brush or from behind a tree. The trees are mesmerizing all by themselves. Great photo!
Beautiful photo! Love this picture. What lovely colors and textures are represented in the trees and all the various growing things. Trees are just so majestic!
What a great photograph. Starkly real with its cushions of green,and some sort of brush in the foreground that makes this one a really good shot.. So a thank you for each day's efforts to bring beauty of different kinds to us. j.e.s.
