Forest bathing by the river I

These photographs are a first attempt to photograph the activity of " forest bathing", ie enjoying walking in a forest for its beneficial qualities. The idea of photographing the experience of something from a sensory perspective seems to me to include a number of images, none of which is "iconic" in itself but that go together as a sum greater than the parts.

In this first experimental attempt, I have created several serial photographs at eye level at about 25mm FL. Shooting at ground level, or with a more wide angle lens, might produce something different. Stitching the images into a panorama might be another way of doing it. More experiments to come! Comments are welcome.
