Have you ever come across an image that makes you question reality? With beautiful landscapes and the right conditions, good photographers with impressive editing skills often come up with brilliant images that leave us astonished. The following image by photographer Joel is one such example. You really need to have a close look at it before you can conclude if it’s a real place, digital art, or a painting:
Joel shot the image in the woods of Vancouver Island in Canada. There are a lot of factors that play into making the image feel unreal. But rest assured that the place is real, and the photographer’s skills are to be applauded for capturing the ethereal look of the woods.
To start, the twisted trees are something that we’re not used to seeing. And the way those twisted trees line up to create a natural frame is another interesting aspect of the image. The natural frame beautifully draws us in, right into the center of the image, where the glowing mist is putting up another magical show.
This place looks so ethereal in an image, but just imagine how walking through it would feel? Going for a hike here could be a spiritual experience in itself. And this photo brilliantly captures the feeling of being there.
Doesn’t this image make you feel like sitting on a branch and contemplating life? Let us know in the comments.
