The photo series titled Cloud Forest by Kilian Schonberger, a photographer based in Cologne, Germany, is dark and mysterious. Although very similar to his recent Brothers Grimm's Homeland series, which was also captured in the Czech Bohemian Forest, these photos explore the beauty of death. All of the trees in the images are dead.

Turning the spruce trees into abstract art, Cloud Forest by Kilian Schonberger detaches them from what was once their source of life. Through fog and snow, the trees are brought out in sharp relief from the land they have not yet let go of. This visually striking landscape photo series will encourage people to better appreciate their surroundings, especially those full of life.
