Sumptuous nighttime photos of forests and stars

A quick perusal of these Benoit Paillé's dream-like photos of forests and stars leaves the distinct impression that the Canadian photographer was tripping when he shot them. That impression, cliché though it may be, is correct. The collection is in fact called "LSD," for the appropriate reason that Paillé was on acid when he took the pictures. After dropping, Paillé headed to the woods, lit some candles, then laid back and shot the stars overhead using long exposures. 

He calls the images "a meditation about the holism of nature surrounding me. Feeling the crystal vibration irradiating from the center of the Gaia mother earth." New age B.S.? Perhaps, but you can't argue with the super-saturated beauty of these pics.
