Illustrates the saying 'can't see the wood for the trees' meaning that someone is too worried about detail and has lost the overview. The man is blocked by his focus on the nearest tree and he is in symbolic darkness, unaware of the light and the wood/forest all around him. Some movement blur of the leaves.
