This week’s featured photo was taken by freelance graphic designer and marketing director Andy Drake of Eugene, Oregon. Taken around 11am on a cold, dry, and foggy December morning, this photo stopped me in my tracks. You can view the rest of the photos from the set on his portfolio.

From Andy:
What I love about this photo and photography in general is that it takes me to a specific moment in time. Feelings, emotions, smells, etc are brought to mind. This particular morning was nicely foggy. I had been trying a new hiking trail near my house, and felt somewhat unsure of my surroundings. This image captured that mysteriousness of the wood around me. It has a fairytale quality; it is both bright/light, with beauty in the colors. The ominous nature of this fairytale effect is also intriguing, but makes me want to see more!

Really, I was just lucky to get the perfect light in a great scene. I’m just a lucky bystander of nature’s innate beauty.
