“Bright Forest Grove”

“Bright sunlight streams from above as the spring sun rises higher into the sky, it’s light intensified by the remaining snow and ice. I stand. transfixed as nature reveals its beauty, yet again.” – Ed Lehming

I stood in this spot for close to half an hour, simply drinking it in. I noticed the bright sunshine filling this scene from the trail and stepped into the forest by a few meters to get past the undergrowth that blocked part of my view. It was like stepping into a fantasy world; the sunlight was just that lovely.

High above, the pines towered, their bright green canopy glowing against the blue sky; their wonderfully textured trunks leading my eyes downward to a grove filled with golden beeches and emerald green spruce.

It was an incredible play of colour and light and I hope the photo does it justice. It’s moments like this that call me out on the trails so frequently. They are moments that exist for a brief time and then are gone again. I’m just happy that I am able to witness so many and am able to carry them back with me as more than just fond memories.

  1. Such a dramatic blending of colors and seasons – one edging out, the other creeping in, balances being sought and changed. Wonderful photograph, perfectly evocative of this time of year for me.
