Black Forest, Hoge Veluwe, The Netherlands

It was early morning and I was photographing in the Hoge Veluwe, a park in central Holland, when I came upon this forest scene. There was still a morning ground fog that fades the distant trees, and the sun was shining at me silhouetting the trees and casting their shadows in my direction. All of these elements give this image great depth and mystery. I call the image "Black Forest" not The Black Forest, which is in Germany, but is not actually black!
