Hey there, I love your black and white forest photography. I felt that it symbolizes a deep dark moment in life. It's like a place in life sealed away from chaos. It's a place in life to search for something meaningful and deep, but yet simple at the same time. The trees and the sky emphasize on the endless possibility to succeed and to be happy. However the branches blocking the sky and the fog may represents obstacles and uncertainty in life.

These are very thought provoking and meaningful pictures, it really captures your creativity and can also be subject to different interpretations :)
