In the Redwood Forest

I don’t know what it is with forests and me. Their dark depths and disquieting mystery always thrill me, but I find the feeling so difficult to capture in a photograph. The redwood forest of the California coast is the most thrilling, and the most frustrating. I have spent hour after hour stalking redwood trails and come back with very little in the way of good photography. Sun, fog, dawn, dusk, I’ve done it all. And I’ll do it again. But occasionally, something clicks. This scene from the Jedediah Smith redwood grove near Crescent City is one of my favorites. (Price Schedule E)
