Along the Trail

Posted by
Steve Rice (Olympia, United States) on 27 October 2010 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

The four mile (6.4 kilometer) trail from Barlow Pass to Monte Cristo follows the roadbed of the Everett & Monte Cristo Railway. The trail is heavily wooded in places and open in others affording views of the 7,000 foot (2,134 meter) peaks in the area.

Monte Cristo

Wow - fantastic exposure and I love the framing to give a sense of height to the trees. A majestic place!

I like the special look of this shot of high contrasts in light. It is very effective to have us looking from the deep woods at the bright light beyond. Excellent.

I love your forest images, Steve. They are so beautiful, and real. Reminds me the one i grew up by. I'll go back soon & browsed through my own forest images lately, a post soon. What i love in yours here is the clarity beyond the thin and so elegant trunks. So inviting, one feels like walking here like entering a dream. I enjoy your perfect light utterly.
