Shinrin Yoku

By on July 11th, 2015 in Photography

One of the things I enjoy about photography is helpful and encouraging people I have come to know over the years. Some have become good friends and while many more are acquaintances, I always enjoy an opportunity to meet and connect with other photographers. One of my favourite activities is a photo walk.

Shinrin-yoku is a Japanese term that means "taking in the forest atmosphere" or "forest bathing." shinrin-yoku.org

It’s been almost 9 months since my friend Prasanna and I decided to put together a last-minute photo walk. The weather was changing and the colours of autumn were everywhere. We wanted to catch some fall colour before the leaves all turned brown.

Our plan was simple. Walk until we find moving water.
