Photographing Wild Bears in the Forests of Finland

My name is Will McGugan, and I'm a photography enthusiast living in London. This year I spent my birthday in a forest in Finland with no company other than about dozen wild Eurasian brown bears and more mosquitoes than I care to count.

The Forest Photography of Jürgen Heckel

Jürgen Heckel is a photographer and sound artist who's currently living in Munich, Germany after living in Paris, France for 14 years. He spends a great amount of time in the great outdoors, and many of his photo projects are studies of trees and forests.

One of his series is titled "Lumen," and contains nighttime long-exposure photos captured amidst trees, with the horizon line illuminated by a line of light -- the light of passing cars.
