Forest Light: Winter

Forest_light

Winter light shining brightly onto the remains of a once mighty redwood. I am fascinated by the light that is able to creep into the forest and how it changes with the seasons. This light in the dark always seems so difficult to capture and the photos never seem to evoke the feeling of being there. Perhaps some things are better left alone or maybe a fool that persists in his folly will someday take that magic photo.

  1. Several days ago I was in a redwood forest like this one. I’m convinced that no camera can capture their glory.
    There is so much more than the image and light in their presence.

    1. Hi Vincent, thanks for those toughest. The trees, light and everything else in the redwood forests do sum up to be an experience that can only be…well…experienced. Have a great day.

  2. This is gorgeous. I live near a place called the Walk of the Ancients where you walk among the remains of huge tingle trees. There is something ethereal about old wood forests that seems to speak to our souls.

    1. Thanks and I agree that walking through the old growth forest is a very special experience and those old trees do have quite a tale to tell to those willing to listen. Hope yo are having a great day.

  3. I think it’s a great shot, Mike, but I understand what you mean. I done some walks in rainforests that have changing light conditions. I love the way the colours and textures seem to change as light filters through the canopy. Different parts are highlighted as shards of light hit them. When you go at different times of day it almost seems like a different place. I find it hard to capture the magic of the setting. You do it much better than me. 🙂
