Soul Food



Limited edition fine art print of 50 – The north woods of the United States has become an escape for me from the bustling life living in Chicago. I came across this patch of forest years ago and have returned several times trying to get the shot I was looking for. After several close attempts and hundreds of mosquito bites, I returned on a mid-August morning where the conditions were perfect. A sweet pine smell filled the air, with no mosquitos and a slowly rising sun peaking through the tall pines. I wanted to capture this image in a panoramic dimension to allow the viewer to picture themselves walking through the same forest that has time and time again recentered my soul and connection with nature. There is such a meditative property to submerging yourself in a setting like this. It is truly food for the soul. Photo © copyright by Derek Nielsen
