Scarlet Forest

Please welcome first-time contributor Jeanne Fiedler, 59, of Washington Twp., NJ. She has been diagnosed with bipolar II disorder. It used to control her life, but no more. She has gotten through it using holistic spirituality, communion with nature and her environment, and positive psychology.

About this photo: “This photograph in red represents my coming to terms with my illness, depression and anxiety, by roaming through nature. Art and nature coming together to complete the whole.

    I love this shot. For me it’s calming and energizing at the same time. Thank you! I’ll be looking for more of your photography on Broken Light. Nature’s healing energy can be so powerful.

    I completely agree; for me, nature represents both metaphor and escape from my inner world, which gets awfully dark at times.

    This photograph is stunningly beautiful. I enjoy interpretive photography and think there is enough room for both artistic photography as well as “as is” photography.
