Summertime Forest

Last month for me was all about my research. I started a 10 week non-stop field work streak at the end of June, and I will continue it until the last week of August, so I am about half way. The fieldwork is going great, but it leaves me little to no time to take any pictures. So when the end of the month came near, I had to force myself to go out with a camera to take some pictures. Without thinking about it, I started taking pictures in the forest, as that is the habitat I have been working in for the last couple of weeks.

As I am catching rodents at the moment, I have to work around sunrise and sunset, leaving little time to take pictures during the nice golden hours. Instead, I took some pictures in the middle of the day in the hot sun with very large contrasts. This triggered my creative side, as you can’t take ‘normal’ pictures with this light, so I had to improvise to get a picture of a forest in summertime.
