In the Woods

It is in the woods that I often find the glowing light that seems to exert a magical pull on me.  I am drawn to the play of light and shadow: bursts of sun through the trees, strong silhouettes of the trunks, leaves etched against the light, deep shadows, dappled sunlight, slanting all feels very mystical, very mysterious.



The use of strong contrasts between light and dark, usually bold contrasts affecting a whole composition.
