[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note

There is something magical about forests in general, it's a world so secret and different from our direct surroundings. I went to one of the forests in the south of our town for a long walk a few day ago. I'm always enchanted by the beautiful light crossing the tree-curtain and which illuminates some places like here on the picture.
I also noticed for several years that today our forests aren't cleaned, like they used to be when I was a child. In fact our forests look more and more like jungles and this seems to be right from an ecological point of view. I would be intersted to know how it is in other countries?

I see that people don't understand what I meant with this picture. I don't think that this is ugly, no, in contrary, if in Switzerland forests look more and more like this, is a ecological choice and permits to a lot of animals and insects species to find a place to live.
The image of proper and clean woods in of the past..and I would have liked to know, how about the forests in other countries.

Hi Anne,
to me this is very artistic like painting. the play of light on the trunk is pleasant and the mosses on the dead wood is unique. Simple straight shot, of course it would be stunning to see a deer peeping there.
This is already lovely.


Ciao Anne,
molto spesso la mancata pulizia dei nostri boschi non trova le sue ragioni in un radicamento e una sensibilità maggiori verso gli aspetti ecologicici, ma trova la sua principale motivazione semplicemente nel diminuito interesse economico verso un certo tipo di attività ...... dal punto della biodiversità una situazione piuttosto che l'altra può determinare vantaggi e svantaggi a seconda delle specie .....,
la mia minor presenza su TN è determinata dall'impegno costante che richiede; personalmente penso che prevalgano quelli che che postano le immagini per essere presenti, ma che in fondo non hanno alcuna cosa da comunicare, in parole più semplici "parlano per dire qualcosa, non perché hanno qualcosa da dire". Un esempio calzante è questa tua immagine, di cui solo qualcuno coglie gli aspetti comunicativi.
Dopo la Buona notte, ti auguro una felice e serena nuova settimana.
Con amicizia

Hi Anne,
A mystical scene well captured with good natural lighting and substantial depth.
