“If I am brave enough to stand against those who have been groomed by fear, I will recognize that where I get knocked down is all about where life begins, and has nothing to do with where it ends.”
― Craig D. Lounsbrough

Although not as bright and sunshiney as my previous images, this one still echoes the spirit of the forest and provides me with thoughts on life and my world. As filtered sunlights drifts down from above, filtered green and yellow, and falls in patches on the leaf strewn ground, shadows reach out, and certain trees show their own particular colours, some bright gold, while others reflect the sky in muted blues, and others loom darkly. In the background, bright sunlight reflects from bright yellow leaves. The trees ‘stand’ tall in the forest reaching towards the sunshine, encircling the brown leaves.

A ‘stand ‘ is also an expression for a group of trees, particularly aspens, who share common root system. While not the case here, with the mix of pine, maple, and oak. I still like the name because it instills multiple images in my mind.
