This is the second shot in a series taken in Ravensdale, Washington on Dec 6, 2008. Being that I haven't gotten out a bunch I was real happy with the way these images turned out.

This image is in a different location and at a different angle. The trees are all of the same type (about 90' tall) and have their full evergreen canopy. This was taken at the golden hour and I walked deep into the trees until I found a break so that the light would provide a nice transition from dark to light.

Ok... so I know a few of you are thinking, "ANOTHER TREE SHOT... Geeze" but hey, I live in a state where the trees out number the people about 1000:1 so, go figure that I take a few shots of trees. Not to mention, they dont talk back, I dont have to pose them, they are always ready to shoot, they never get tired and I dont have to pay for make-up and hair :-)

Not to mention, if trees were good enough for Ansel, I think I can take a few shots of them as well.

Seriously, I love the forest and the escape it provides from the hustle and bustle of the day. Being able to walk in the forest and take pictures is truly a wonderful experience.
