This image is from a walk in a very hilly forest area just a few days ago. The trees haven't all gotten their leaves on them yet, but spring is starting to show. It was a beautiful bright sunny day, which interfered with this image somewhat, as I was shooting into the sun. The whole forest floor is still covered with leaves left over from last fall and were reflecting a large amount of light in the open areas. It will be interesting to come back here in the summer time to see how different it will be with much more foliage on the trees!
I got many other interesting nature images out here, and will do a separate post on that and put up several photos at the same time.
