his is an image I photographed back in May while making a brief visit to Northern California’s redwood forests. I had stared at this image too many times to count, opened it up and closed it feeling like it wasn’t worth my time. I decided to finally give it one more go and slowly but surely I liked the direction I was headed with it. This was one of the most chaotic scenes I have come across, but for some reason I was so attracted to it. Maybe it was the stunning morning light backlighting the mossy branches and ferns. I had to remove a ton of flare which was one of the main reasons I never decided to go ahead and process this image. I will probably keep working on that to the point where I will never want to look at this again! I wanted this to capture the wildness of the forests in the region with the early golden light of sunrise. The redwoods are one of the most beautiful places I have ever been, and I am sure to return again in the near future. I definitely would like to spend some quality time wandering around the towering trees and finding more scenes like this. Anyways, this will probably close out my posts for 2015, so I just want to say once again thank you to all of you for your continued support. I have plenty of plans already for 2016 that I can’t wait to get into. Happy new year!
