Dull gray morning and the sun was working hard to break through the clouds. I noticed a perfect even light coming from the opening in the back of the forest and I exposed as many frames as I could to get this scene. I knew I only had a few moments with this kind of light. The reddish forest carpet was just as important as the rows of trees and I tried several perspectives and different lenses. Moments later the sun broke through and the harsh light made the scene look entirely different.
