As an antipodean, one thing that’s always struck me about Northern Hemisphere is just how pleasant the forests are here — no bracken, no leeches, no potentially deadly spiders and snakes. (You just have to watch out for the bears.) There’s a certain serenity to these landscapes, a sense that these are places that haven’t changed for many hundreds of human lifespans. It’s an atmosphere that’s captured beautifully by Hungarian photographer Daniel Kovalovszky in a series called “Green Silence,” which we spotted at Featureshoot — his images find the symmetry and beauty in these stark environments, as well as their quirks (check out the bendy trees!)
