Through the Light || Oak-Hickory Forest

This is the last set of images from our visit to the Ozark National Forest early this month.  One other visual aesthetic that always makes my heart go pitter-patter is the effect of natural light (or artificial, in some cases) on a scene.  I know I'm not alone on this - it's a common theme across the board in photography, which I am no expert in.  This "Through the Light" feature, much like "Hues" and "Texture" is merely my own perspective on themes that stand out to and inspire me on a regular basis. I think the last one is my favorite.
