The Forest Primeval

I went away for the weekend in upstate New York visiting a friend. Daily thunderstorms in the area have left the vegetation a lush, saturated green, and the nearby forests remind me a lot of the primitive landscape paintings of the 19th century Hudson River School.

I brought only my Leica M system with me and also included a Voigtlander 12mm, and two Leica-R lenses for it, the 80-200mm zoom and 60mm macro.

This forest sunset was taken with the Voigtlander 12mm super wide angle lens, which typically has a heavy vignette. Rather than correct it, I decided to use it for the symbolic feeling of moving from the dark into the light.
This photo and the two below were taken with the 21mm Elmarit lens.

"X" marks the spot.  I liked the criss-crossing of trees and branches that formed this composition shot with the 80-200mm zoom.
