The title is a song by Enya. Yes I know, her music is awesome ;) An older pic, taken a couple of months ago.


Editting done: I upped the contrast and saturation a bit, and lowered the gamma.

I like the colours in this photo. The sun that makes them appear from the lightest to the darkest from the center to the edges is fantastic! I like how the trees complex their branches, but i would prefer a bigger photo so that the analysis would fit perfectly for these details. Anyway great work, keep up like that!! :)

The photograph reminds me of the Great East Window of York Minster or indeed that of many another gothic cathedral. The resulting effect, whereby an enclosed, dark space contrasts with glorious fulgence, emanating from a window whose orientation symbolised Christ as the light of the world, may, in terms of gothic architecture, have arisen out of happenstance. Architects were discovering (actually re-discovering: the Romans could do it a thousand years earlier) how to support large 'gaps' in walls, or in other words, how to incorporate enormous windows without weakening the overall structure. Whether deliberate or not, the effect was to offer radiant hope amid the gloom of lives lived in unremitting grudgery and toil, of comfort amid fear and anxious uncertainty.

Your picture captures a version of this offered, at least partially, by nature. The 'ride' in the woodland, so redolent and symbolic of the Nave of such a cathedral, is man-made (used originally for hunting, often enough). The gloomy, dank woodland, concealing lurking thorns and fearsome teeth, stinging things and prickly plants, provides a metaphor for life's darker elements. The light revealed, like that from a cathrdral window, and also at the end of the metaphorical tunnel, provides hope, and with it also a sense of mystery, arising from intrinsic beauty as much as from any unconscious allegory that might be read into it by the more thoughtful observer.

A fine work!

The path feels cathedral like. You can almost imagine a gathering of the fey at the end of the path. Magical and beautiful.
