In My Time Of Need by DpressedSoul In My Time Of Need by DpressedSoul
Summer is miles and miles away
And no one would ask me to stay
And I should contemplate this change
To ease the pain
And I should step out of the rain
Turn away
At times the dark's fading slowly
But it never sustains
Would someone watch over me
In my time of need?

(Opeth, In My Time Of Need)

Taken on the road between my hometown Bad Arolsen and Eilhausen, Waldecker Land (Germany).

This photo caught my eye immediately. It very much reminds me of a night drive, even though I am certain this was taken during daylight.

The darkness to the photo adds to the lure and mystery like a night drive often provide. The angle is perfect looking down the road straight ahead that seems to disappear into the fog. Up a ahead I can see just the faintest outline of it, as our future often seems.

There is no other road to take and the path, uncertain as it seems, is straight forward. Despite the fog, the path ahead is also brightened. In fact, as a viewer I feel like I am emerging from the darkness of the forest.

I love the over hanging tree branches. They separate the path but seem to casually reach out and down as if to try to stop the traveler going down this road, however their limbs are weak. Looking at their structure they don't seem stiff at all, but instead very bendable and limp.

Fantastic shot!

Funny how beauty can be so sad sometimes... Your words and photographs echo deep inside of me. I tend to think "depressed" souls are only souls living in a world naturally lacking light from the heart and therefore kind of "cursed" to hurt or disconnect until... Whatever(with a big W)
Your works are very powerful.

I believe that beauty can be found in everything, even in the saddest of times. It's a certain kind of hypersensitivity and -empathy, that allows me to see this beauty. Thank you for your kind comment, I'm glad that you like my work! :blackrose:
