38 Magical Forest Photographs

Share:  

Forest can be a magical place to capture wonderful photographs, but they can also be a very difficult place to shoot. Mist and random light throw up all sorts of difficult exposure situations for a photographer. We think these photographers pretty much nailed it though. Enjoy our latest curated collection of 38 magical forest photographs. See after the collection for a few links to cool resources on shooting forests for yourself.

You should inform each photographer that their picture is up here! Mine is, and I’m flattered to be among so many other great pictures though I happened to have stumbled upon it through searching places my photo was linked to. I’m sure others would love to know they’re up here! Thanks and great collection.

wow! I cant choose which one is my favorite, I will go with “After the rain “by “Steve-h” because of the powerful colors!

A snowshoe trail in West Bragg Creek Alberta Canada, I looked up and was amazed at what was in front of me….trees, skies and snow, I had to pull out the LeicaD-lux3 and take this panoramic shot!

Let me know what you think.

These photos are all stupendous!! As I am a tree lover @ heart!! I felt I had died and have gone to heaven, as I viewed them!! Thank you all for such art that you have portrayed in the forest!!:):):)

You are an awesome photographer. These pictures remind me of growing up in the woods/rural Arkansas. These are spectacular memory visions for me. Thank you so very much for sharing these.

Sincerely,
Crystal T
