Here's one from my daily walks in the local forest (either a large park or small forest actually). Taken early in the morning with some beautiful sunlight filtering through the hanging branches creating somewhat of a portal, as if you could step through into another world. I always expect someone or something to "step through" so to speak...

Shot on a Pentax KP with the famous DA*50-135mm/f2.8 (sometimes called "stack of primes") which I bought over 12 years ago when I used a K20D. This was a triple exposure, merged in Photomatix, then edited in Darktable. Finally the image was subjected to an Orton process with 30% opacity.
