Default Finnish Forest

Hi all! Here is a scene from forest that I like to walk through. No pun intended, but I can get lost in the beauty of trees when the sun is shining (and when it is warmer!!!). It is just so peaceful and beautiful.

Very nice, Ned.
Looks amazingly a lot like some our landscape here in Florida.

Looks like somewhere you'd expect to see elves and hobbits...

Like how you used a portrait view to convey how straight and tall the
trees are...

LOL... No, no elves and hobbits... though I do fear the odd bear or moose intoxicated with fermented apples! (kidding)...

Thanks and all the best.

Very relaxing, peaceful picture. It would be nice to have it framed on a wall..especially in an office.

An oasis of quietude.

I very much like the way you photographed the trees. You were able to convey a sense of the height of the trees...also like the lighting.

i like the use of the vertical format it emphasises the height
and the use of the undergrowth at the bottom a very pleasing composition
one thing missing though i thought
where is the rally car?

It's a lovely forest - reminds me of some of the forests I saw in Washington. A good shot because it makes me feel the forest, not just see it. I get an idea of the vastness of the tall trees - something that's sometimes difficult to capture.

It's totally different from our local forests.

Thanks for the kind feedback Harriet. Such feedback only helps in taking other photos. This forest picture was fun. But when I get a new tripod, well, I look forward to adding some quality to the photo which I am not always able to do when taking handheld pictures. Thanks
