Artistic forest

by Werner Van Steen

It was fun to play around in the forest covered with bluebells !
Equipment: Canon Eos 5D Mk III + 70-200 f/2.8 II lens + Gitzo tripod + Arca Swiss ballhead
Werner Van Steen
After a first visit to Alaska in 1998, Werner decided to take up nature and wildlife photography after teaching himself the techniques, learning from books and practising on his own. Not long after, World Wildlife Fund Belgium (WWF) used his pictures for calendars and greeting cards and Werner was invited for numerous expositions. In 2007, he got a Highly commended image in the BBC Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest and in 2011 his picture of a lava sea became the winner of the Nature's Abstract category in the 2011 European Wildlife Photographer of the Year contest. As a former free climbing champion, he most of all loves to photograph mountains but Werner can be found travelling all over the world in search for various nature subjects under the best light...

The softness of the color makes it beautiful.

I love the way that the blurring softens the colours.

If you hadn’t told me, I would’ve thought that was a painting. A refreshing sight from chilling mountains and magnificent snakes.
