I was about and about amongst the trees earlier this week and was lucky enough to get some sunshine before the rain clouds eventually came. Thankfully, I was already in the car heading home by that time ;)

I particularly like the second one - very interesting perspective and creative use of over-exposure!

Thank you, Glyn. I appreciate the feedback. I recently discovered that I can use the overexposure to my benefit, as it gives the impression that the trees are standing tall in to infinity… It helps to create a little air of mystery.

Nice shots ! More often than not forest floors are a mess, dead leaves, fruits, branches, fallen tree trunks, animal droppings and what not; such a clutter seldom contributes to a fine image. So when photographing forests, if you have a cluttered, unattractive forest floor, exclude it from your frame, shoot from a low angle with the camera slightly tilted upwards, voila…. Better forest shots right off the bat.
Thank you for the tip. :)
I actually like the clutter on the ground in these woods - the trees are still mostly bare but the woodland ground was teaming with life with ivy growing everywhere, probably taking advantage of the daylight while it still can before the tree canopies cut it off from the ground. I plan to go back in later in the year when the trees are in full leaf.
