among the decay of wild forest
I took this picture in Washington on the day when I went to the rain forest, and after my Seattle workshop the day before. This was our last stop on a day when we went to the civil war re-enactment, the rain forest, an abandoned house, Forks (where Twilight is based), and then here. The beach had HUGE trees washed ashore from the ocean. They were all white and cracked and looming like a sign of the world's end. I decided on the spot that I had to create a picture there, because to not photograph it would be very sad indeed. Even more important than having that photograph though is the feeling that stays with me when I think about being there...it was both beautiful and tragic at the same time, a combination of emotions that stirs something deep within me.
