Into the forest

Into the enchanted forest

Fog and trees go together quite nicely.

I walked back and forth in front of this stand of trees at the Paul Wolff Forest Preserve near Gilberts, Illinois to find the angle that would best distribute the trees throughout the shot. I settled on placing the two larger trunks just left of center and splitting the distance from the closest tree to the right edge of the frame with the three thinner trees in the distance, though at the time I wasn't thinking about subdividing the space, it just looked balanced to me.

I've always loved park settings with big old trees, yet with the manicured lawn look too. Lovely shot.
