Fractal forestry

This undoctored photograph won the Swedish photographer Jocke Berglund a "Wildlife Photographer of the Year" award from the London Natural History Museum.

Found among the convergences contest winners at McSweeney's.

Neat picture... I was rummaging through the last issue of Appalachia and read your piece on the huts. It really put into words my affinity for them - particularly the part about being ok with huts being "subordinate to the urban, so long as relationships are clear, honest, and easily understood." I also liked the bit about the huts "offering a relationship to nature that is neither ironic nor complex." Perhaps that's why most of the croos seem to be so genuinely happy. Thanks for the article, and keep it up!

Thanks, Andrew- I'm glad you found it.

I just clicked on your picture and realized that you're that Andrew - my neighbor in the huts this past fall. Nice blog- may I recommend that you write in it more often? Not only would that give me something else to read, but I find that a lot of my blog entries develop into longer essays that I can shop out to newspapers and magazines. Good luck with it,
