I was driving along a backroad and saw this scene from the corner of my eye. I was quicky struck by the graphical quality of the thin ribbons of golden light standing in the middle of the darkness, and the mistery of the place, where almost all trees were bare and looking dead. Light alone seemed to make this place alive.
I stopped dead and run to look for a decent composition making order of the chaos of the forest. I had just the time to load the 617 camera and take a couple of images. Then, the sun went down and the forest came back to the “reality”.
