These magical woodland images were captured by Kilian Schoenberger, a color-blind photographer. In his series 'Into the Woods,' the German photographer captures stunning European woods that do not in any way reflect this visual affliction that prevents him from seeing certain hues. As Kilian Schoenberger explained to Exposure Guide, his color-blindness actually helps him out because "I don’t have to separate singular colors visually and can totally concentrate on the structure for a convincing composition.”

Featuring vibrant greens and stunning light flares, these photographs instil a sense of wonder and magic. The breathtaking shots will not only inspire awe, they also have a peaceful quality that will likely make you believe in something bigger that yourself. In addition to photographing woodland areas, Into the Woods also includes forrest trails, hidden creeks and other areas.
