Troncs moussus, odeur de terre, serpente le frais d'une forêt acidulée dont les verts de sucent comme autant de bonbons au citron ; j'aime le paisible reflet de miroir qui mire les arbres si suaves tout autour de moi... Assise sur une pierre fraîche au bord de l'onde claire, je pose une main à fleur d'eau, laissant un vairon me la venir fervemment baisoter... Je ferme les yeux, m'enivrant de la douceur fée de cet éternel instant...

Et il ne me suffira que de revenir voir ce cliché pour ne jamais me réveiller.

What a gorgeous shot JM! So cool, lush, and green. I miss the color green and really have to go out looking for it. Beautifully composed. I love how those trees frame the upper half, leaning in from the mossy banks toward the water.

This is just magical. I wish I had better control of my camera to catch light like this in the forest.
