Rainforests are, well, wet. Consistently humid and moist, they thrive because of their wet, rainy climates. To experience a rainforest in person is to know the pungent, earthy humidity, the smells and sounds and feeling of being in a living, breathing place full of life.
Photographer Julien Palast from Paris has a short yet beautiful series of photos entitled simply RainForest that give credence to their name. Shot through a pane of glass covered in water droplets, the foliage behind becomes even more saturated with feeling. Colorful lighting helps bring the scene to life. In one photo, a Bird of Paradise flower coyly peers through the droplets, inviting you to come inside.
