The forest is separated into several parts for different uses, this side is for research, visitors are not allow to step onto the ground. See the part that use as a park in my previous photo

Bonjour, chère Ally,
Une autre jolie composition forestière, où les troncs sont bien droits, et cherchent la lumière du haut.
Les feuilles mortes forment un tapis délicat sur le sol.
Très intéressante note d'accompagnement.

The wideness of the area is giving depth to the composition. The point of view is showing the details and colors of the trees. There is a good contrast between the different colors of the scene. Have a nice day.

Looks like you had a great time exploring this little forest. The ground is well kept with large trunks for visitors to explore. I like this view in good perspective eliminating most of the foliage on top of the trees.
Thanks and have a nice day.

Love shot of the enchanted forest floor. Love the vibrant green against the golden fallen leaves.

I liked the contrast between the ground covered with leaves and the vertical trunks, nice image of the forest with a good sharpness and framing.
