In Japan Cherry blossom viewing is a big thing. Where I live there are blooming fruit trees, but much more impressive than that is the outbreak of beech leaves in spring time. Therefore my spring ritual is beech leaves viewing so to speak. There is a special light and atmosphere in the woods during spring which I tried to capture in sketches. But I had a camera with me first only a mobile phone later a compacrt camera. Finally I decided to spend more time with this topic and began to document beech foliage during the whole year in the change of seasons.
