Yesterday was a difficult day – I experienced several disappointments that hit me harder than I expected. I felt lost in my unhappiness and aloneness. As a last ditch effort to save myself I grabbed my cameras and headed into the woods on this very foggy day. It was amazing, the transformation in me, the moment I stepped into the woods the rest of the world faded away, and my sadness with it. It was damp, cold, and stunningly beautiful. It was quiet and smelled amazing. It healed me, and I had a wonderful time slowly making my way along the trail, stopping every few steps to appreciate and record the details around me, over me, and underfoot.

    Great photo. I am a bit stunned at the quality of the Iphone photos. I've seen others and the clarity and tonality fooled me into thinking they were shot on more traditional devices. Ferns are my favorite plant by far and this looks like a sea of them. I'll be heading out to the Redwood forests soon and hopefully will experience that transformation as you have described here. Thanks again for your comments and I'll definitely be back to visit your photostream!

    Gorgeous image. A lot of iPhone shots are over saturated (in a good way!) but this is very subtle, absolutely perfect. Two thumbs up...
