Seeded Earth


Sunlit Forest

Devils Lake State Park

Devils Lake State Park

Pleasures lie thickest where no pleasures seem:
There’s not a leaf that falls upon the ground
But holds the joy of silence or of sound,
Some spirits begotten of a summer dream.” ~Laman Blanchard

On one of the few sunny days in late October, we traveled 40 miles north and visited the premier state park in Wisconsin, Devil’s Lake. The lake is a big draw for most visitors, but I prefer the trails through the many hardwood forests. The trees had lost just enough leaves that sunlight was filtering onto the forest floor.



  1. I often find it challenging to compose shots like this — dense leaves and branches, filtering sun. You have handled this beautifully. Love the light glistening on the tall light grasses.

  3. So pretty with the yellows, the light grasses, and the dark bark of the trees.

  4. I concur with Bernie. You’ve captured the sunlight dancing in the forest.
