Photos I took while hiking last weekend near Forest Park in Oregon. My friend said to me that she felt the presence of the divine here, as the sun passed through the trees, casting rays onto the ground. Nature is truly an endless source of fascination and beauty for me. One of the many reasons why I came to this place — to explore it’s wild forests and stunning coastlines. Being in nature one loses themselves, everything is authentically real here. There are no lies in nature. No agendas, no walls, nor admission fees. Nature is the closest thing one can come to understanding any semblance of truth.
