Color in the forest

We are fortunate enough to have a small forested area behind our home that provides me with ample opportunity for short hikes when we are not journeying on the Appalachian Trail.  The photo above is a scene I commonly shoot, almost always in the exact same spot of the woods.  I am entranced by the light shining down upon the forest beneath and the contrast it provides to the otherwise darker feel of a wooded area.  I am particularly attracted to the rays illuminating the forested floor, as if a beacon was lighting a very special path, inviting me to follow it and no other.
