    1. Thank you, I had some luck with a small ray of light protruding into this dark patch of forest. It's the exception in a series of 30 completely failed shots, but hey, one usable is enough for me. Posted 5 years ago
      1. Definitely. The way the light illuminates the head makes the shot so gorgeous. Posted 5 years ago
