One of the things I love about New Zealand is how close we are to all aspects of nature, even if we live in the central city. The beach, mountains and forests are all relatively easy and quick to get to. I had some time to kill after work, on the way to a mates house and stopped off for a quick bush walk. One minute in and you are away from the cars, traffic and people. The lush green freshness radiates the senses and offers a calming element to ones busy lifestyle. We are approaching winter at the moment, so it gets dark fairly early. Looking up at the moon through the rapidly darkening bush, I caught this shot with my GRD IV. With some minor editing I placed it into a square format and bumped the contrast a little to make the clean black silhouette of the forest.
