The marvelous forests of Earth vary drastically throughout the different regions and climates of the world. Despite their vast differences, they all manage to possess a mysterious, magical charm that transfixes our gaze. These organic monoliths can bring about a certain therapeutic sensation from within, perhaps a subconscious reminder of our primordial relationship with this living space vessel we call Earth.

For those of us that struggle to find the time to make it out to witness these natural works of art in person, the Bored Panda has graciously been accepting image submissions of some of the most remarkable forest photographs ever captured. With over 100 submissions, presented here is but a handful of these prodigious displays of the power of nature.
