The Secret Life of Trees
It occurred to me while standing alone in this forest that these trees are all living here... it's their home ...and they go about their business whether any visitors arrive or not. There is a stillness in this place which is unlike any other.

Location
A forest that once had lots of wolves, on the way to Grimburg, the stronghold of the rogue knights of this area (Naturpark Saar-Hunsrück).

You have some GORGEOUS scenery shots, but this one struck a chord. Makes me miss home, growing up in the mountains and forests of the southeastern US....

Let me please dream that there are still some wolves there.
This seems like the perfect place for them to be happy...
The beauty and the silence that your photo transmits is overwhelming
Majestic, these trees, covered with moss... making me think about the beautiful
smell of humid air filled with forest scent... and the forest getting darker and
deeper towards the left... where wildlife awaits!

Yeah there is definitely something special about this place, it looks warm and not empty like some forests, but it also looks very clean and not crowded, it's so magical, and calm.
