Sanctuary

I found this hidden remote spot a few days ago during a clear sunny autumn morning, not the mood I wanted to capture, but on the next day everything changed. The intermittent drizzle was exactly what I needed, even if sometimes it became too dense for an unsealed camera. The strong wind added some motion blur. A few minutes latter the drizzle became rain, the wind became a storm! The perfect moment was gone...

    Beautifully conveyed atmosphere and "mood indigo," Luis. The amount of foliage on the RT and foreground feel somewhat excessive—and snapshot-like—to me. I wonder if a bit of cropping there might further enhance the abstract quality of the of trunks and etherial quality of the filtered light.

    Luis, what a beautiful forest capture! Is this far from where you live? You seem to walk in the forest quite often. What I really like here is the light and the density of the dark green. The whole place looks indeed like a hidden and remote spot - but I notice there is a path. I also think you composed this very nicely also with a great sense of depth.

    suggests to me a sacred space. It reminds me somewhat of an old gothic cathedral. The effect of space and the ornaments, even the light case from high above shows similarities.
