Redwoods - John Muir Woods - A Rain Forest

    Newer Older

    As a part time photographer you have to take your shots when you get them.
    Sometimes that means the weather doesn't cooperate. But that can be a good
    thing too. Most part time photographers limit themselves to nice, sunny,
    clear blue days. But I have found that those cold, windy, rainy days can
    make for some of the better shots. I spent a day shooting Muir Woods
    during a heavy rain storm. The result, nearly all the shots are usable.
    The wind and low light with long exposure times did present some problems.
    The main concern was of course keeping the camera dry. So the camera and
    the tripod got the benefit of the umbrella while the wife and I were left to
    some plastic ponchos we purchased in the gift shop. Still, it was worth.
    The colors are much more saturated, the dust on the leaves rinsed off and
    the trails darker and as you can see in this one, a small creek flows down
    the path. I enjoyed the rainy day and I hope you do too.

      Very nice. And very Muir Woods - instantly recognizable.
