The photo I propose is a forest road in the Poiana Stampei, Suceava County. It was taken two months ago, when wandering madly through the woods the silence of the road amazed me. Living in the mountain area, the winter was still present everywhere.
What deeply impressed me was the tree wall that defends the forest road.
In our area, in the last few years, hundreds of thousands of trees have fallen asleep, some in the wake of the weather, others under the ticking zest of the druzhba. Our forests suffer, the overall picture has changed a lot. My parents say they no longer recognize the paths that were once enclosed by towering and healthy trees, and today they are naked and grieved.
That's why the trees curtain, which defends the forest road, seemed astounding. Here the hand of the avid man has not yet arrived. I pray to remain the same and to enjoy the landscape every year of my life.
