"Flowering Tabebuia"

Swamp and forest scenes are inherently busy. Lots of vertical lines interwoven with branches in all directions and trees scattered every which way. Yet, I feel a quietness when I am in the middle of it. The images below are composites of multiple images, distilling the scene down to its essence.

Taken during a rainy day. I was trying to stay dry while the lone palm was soaking up the precious water.  Multiple shots from different angles around the tree and then overlaid with varying degrees of opacity give it its fine texture.

Forest Bathing
The concept of Shinrin-yoku, or forest therapy, developed in the 1980-ies has become a cornerstone of preventive health care and healing in Japanese medicine.
This is not exercise, hiking or jogging. It is simply being in nature and connecting with it through our senses of sight, hearing, taste, smell and touch – immersing ourselves.
The image was taken in Germany, in the park of 19th-century Castle Rauischholzhausen near the town of Marburg. The park with its mature trees is a popular venue for weddings and weekend outings.
“And into the forest I go, to lose my mind and find my soul.” – John Muir
