If you love discovering extraordinary travel destinations off the beaten path, do we have a place for you. Though this may look like a scene straight out of a fairy-tale, this blue forest is, in fact, real. Just 30 minutes south of Brussels, in Belgium, is a forest called Hallerbos. During the spring, the forest’s floor is covered in bluebell flowers which creates a carpet-like effect. Recently, photographer Kilian Schönberger went deep into the woods to capture these incredible shots.
When asked about the colors, he said, “The colors are really that blue, especially under the moist conditions of the morning fog. England is famous for its bluebell forests, too.”
He continues, “There is not too much post processing done. The fog is natural. Forecasting foggy conditions is an essential part of my photography. Some contrast enhancement and color management in the darker parts of the image are all I’ve done.”
