the forest is sleeping

When midnight mists are creeping
And all the land is sleeping
Around me tread the mighty dead
And slowly pass away…

To trust our roots first, making them firm again. Beautiful place & mono. Let it sleep the time it needs, might be a strengthening necessary job and the roots here are so strong i'm confident with the flourishing new green leaves on their way up & ahead.

Time feels to move slowly in places like this . . and, without color, even the seasons merge as one . . Lovely photowork.

Göran from Skanör, Sweden

Beautiful picture. There is a dark structure to the right, placed almost perfectly according to the rule of thirds. This, combined with the twisted roots in the foreground, gives the photo a somewhat disturbing feeling.
