I took the photograph at Thetford Forest Park in central England on a sunny day. The path is actually part of a network of mountain bike trailers in the park, and the light through the treetops was perfectly illuminating this patch of grass that I put into focus. The dreamy effect comes from the soft bokeh and focus of the 50mm Leica Noctilux f/0.95, which has a very distinct style. Images made with the Noctilux are known for this softness, which was the perfect tool to really give the viewer the feeling of a stroll through dreamland.
Spring is fast approaching in England, and that was very evident last weekend while hiking through Thetford Forest. Although the temperature hovered near freezing and it actually hailed during the hike, there was also moments of brilliant sunshine casting through the green tree canopies, creating a lush forest scene that screamed of changing seasons. Using the Leica SL (Type 601) and the 50mm f/0.95 Noctilux, I took this photograph of the trees with the sunlight casting a brilliant green hue over the forest.
