the time in between...

I spent yesterday morning exploring with Veda.
Partly we went out because it was that moment in between a misty rain and the sun pushing its way through...
I love that still time!

It is so beautiful in the woods when it is damp, everything is so vibrant!
The mosses, the fresh, new leaves,
everything is pushing its way out and up towards the sun.

The environment is definitely a large source of inspiration for me.
I love the natural lines and forms.
The colors, the scent, the sounds!

One of the things I love immensely is mushrooms.
I have posted about this before,
but I never tire of seeing these in the woods, in their own habitat.
It still amazes me how diverse the genre is!!!

I also love moss, lichen and tiny flowers!
The moss has been so vibrantly green lately, I am mesmerized when walking through the woods!

I took quite a few photos, so I will have to split this post in two or maybe 3.
What do you like to photograph in nature?


  1. 1. I love the name Veda.
    2. I love it when you romp, baby.
    3. I like to photograph it ALL, if the light is right:)

  2. I love the name Veda too, I was thinking, did you name her after the girl in the film "my girl"?
    It is hard to pick my favourite natural thing to photograph, I love blossoms in the spring, but also love photographing lichens and mosses.

  3. What I like to photograph in nature is, uh, nature. ;) Really everything - tiny little mushrooms and flowers, and big, open landscapes, forest finds and ocean treasures - I love it all. Looks like you two had fun!

  4. it looks so pretty there! you'll think i'm a big weiner, but i miss the woods now! i won't go in after i see the first snake. too scary!
