“I’ve always believed there are moments in our lives which can be defined as a transition between the before and after, between the cause and the effect.”
― Benjamin X. Wretlind
Along the trail, the trees thin in places, a transition from forest to glade. More light enters along this transition zone, creating an ideal environment for new growth. Composting leaves and thin ground cover allow the sun’s light to warm the ground and germinate seeds which lie buried, waiting for conditions like this. A cycle begins, ends, continues.
It’s a transition zone. A place of change from one thing to another. I take note of these places, careful to observe them on future visits. The forest is a living and ever-changing place. The changes are often slow and subtle, like the light the weaves among the branches, often missed by the human eye which is constantly adjusting to balance the light, but captured by the camera, a moment, rather than a transition.
That’s the element I’m trying to capture in this “Into the Green Veil Series”, it’s that transitory light, which must be seen over a longer period of time rather than the split second of a typical camera shutter snap.
