Fall in the woods

Fall in the woods

Fall in the Tennenlohe forest, Germany

This picture illustrates that time and patience are some of the most important pieces of “equipment” of a nature photographer. I've discovered this spot in the woods two years ago. In May 2004 I have re-visited the spot to check if the ferns still grow as high and dense there. Another picture in the gallery was made at that opportunity. Then I waited more than four months for fall colors to arrive. Finally, at the end of September, with perfect weather for the shot (drizzle, overcast sky) I have taken this photo.
