X marks the forest

You will see these crossed trunks again at some point. One image wasn't enough.


I made this during a quiet two hours I spent in the Hoh rainforest during Exposure Northwest's last workshop. While the rest of the group left for an afternoon siesta, I stole a couple of hours for myself alone in a mossy forest, wandering farther in than I had on any previous journeys.

    I love all this moss Zeb! What a cool find in the 'X'! I can only imagine how many interesting comps will come from this spot.
  • Ivan Sohrakoff PRO 3y

    I can see how one image would not be enough. Very nicely done, and such an original comp in a well-photographed area.

    Positively dripping in moss - great find on the crossed trunks. Was this SOOC or have you boosted the green?

    Zeb----spending a mere two hours at the Hoh is harding enough time to really
    explore this vast domain! But for those that have never been here, it is probably
    enough time to gather some good compositions!

    stunning image Zeb.
  • ecojenna 3y

    Lance McCoy It is vast, but thankfully this was my fifth or sixth trip over the years, and each year I wander a bit further in.

    Brian Smithson With film it is a bit tough to go SOOC as the film needs to be scanned to get to a digital format and that always influences the final result. In this case the scanned image was flatter and more red than real life, so I brought it back up to how I remembered the forest. If you ever see the Hoh it is at least this saturated, if not ridiculously more so. ;-)

    seems there is both an end and a new beginning under or beyond the x
    the image is a description of love of green by itself, beautiful!
