The Forest Floor

Gunnison National forest, Colorado

I captured this imagine afternoon while wandering through the woods near my campsite in the Gunnison National Forest. The texture of the fallen bark and pine cones was what first drew me to this scene, but the small green plants growing amongst the bark was what convinced me that I needed to walk back to camp and grab my gear. It was a great way to spend a little time relaxing and shooting in camp before heading out that afternoon.
