Through The Forest

Black And White Photography, David Jensen, Photography


A small section of the Superior Hiking Trail near my home in Duluth Minnesota.  For those unfamiliar with the trail, it runs about 310 miles along northern Minnesota between the Canadian border and the Minnesota/Wisconsin border, most of which is along the hills above Lake Superior.

In the forest after the rain started

Here in Germany we have a saying “Steter Tropfen holen den Stein” (~ constant dripping wears away the stone), but also “der Tropfen, der das Fass zum überlaufen bringt” (~ the drop that makes the barrel overflowing).

Same is, when rain falls on the forest ground. First, the rain will be soaked. The longer the rain lasts, the more water won’t be soaked. Instead, it searches a way to escape. So, the water comes back to skylight at a tiny, but growing, spring.
