Enchanting Photos of Autumnal Forests by a Wandering Photographer

There is nothing quite like a long walk through the woods to clear the mind, particularly in the crisp autumn air when the leaves have transformed into vibrant variations of red and orange. Thankfully, photographer Janek Sedlr captures the profound beauty of the forest in its most stunning state. The young photographer, who hales from the Czech Republic, reveals the haunting atmosphere of the woods and meadows where he goes to seek peace.

A self-taught photographer, Sedlr had initially studied ceramics before changing his focus. During a difficult period of his life, he began to escape to the countryside of his home region, Moravia and the White Carpathian Nature Reserve, with just his backpack and camera. On these long walks through the forest he witnessed such beauty, that “words cannot convey, a man must just be present to experience the moment.” His photographs are his attempts to share the magnificence of the natural recluse he observes.

Sedlr believes that walking through nature allows a man to emerge with heavier legs, but a lighter mind. His enchanting images of the Carpathian Woods are excellent motivation to get outside and go for a wander.
