OVER THE MOUNTAINS AND THROUGH THE WOODS.

IMAGE BY ASHLEY MARSTON

This image instantly draws you into the wonder of the moment. Where are the children going? What is this immense forest? It’s whimsical and mysterious. It’s wondrous and nostalgic. It’s like a fairy tale we’ve all read, but don’t know the ending to yet, so we just want to turn the page. It’s as if we are looking into a child’s dream world – into his or her imagination. We are transported by this image, and for that reason, this image is named as one of our Dear Photographer Showcase Finalists and will be on display at the Elevate+Grow Workshop in Portland, OR in June.
