I have this habit of trying to photograph the Sunlight through the trees or in other words called as Komorebi. ( Komorebi is a Japanese word that roughly translates to “sunlight shining through the leaves of trees.”) During our trek in Chinnar Wildlife Sanctuary, Munnar, Kerala, India, where the sun was at its high at 9 am, I tried that and it didn’t come out as well as it did in another komorebi shot. I couldn’t see the outcome of the photograph well with the sun on my face and I didn’t want to slow down and try again because my friend was almost half cooked by then. But when I used that not-quite-good photograph and applied some effects from Photo Mania, this is what I got.
And I kind of liked the outcome and the way the effect went well with the photograph.
And oh! here is the original

Trees are poems that earth writes upon the sky,
We fell them down and turn them into paper,
That we may record our emptiness.
“The clearest way into the Universe is through a forest wilderness.”

One of my favorite photographs from my trip to Matheran, Pune, India. I have always loved the way sunlight shines through the trees. And this was in the wilderness during our early morning walk. I loved that place.
