When I ride my bike through The Hague Forest (Haagse Bos) just around the corner I see only beauty. Leafy light and shadow play. But at one time I biked through it at 3 AM in the dead of night. Then creatures big and small came out. I tried to capture this feel during daytime. A forest is a archetype for all our fears because behind every tree perverts, notorious highwaymen and other strange folks can dwell, so you better be aware.
