One of the perks of my California Department of Fish and Game job is that I get sent from Arcata to Crescent City, California several times a week. It’s an hour and a half drive one way, which takes me through several Redwood State and National Parks. On those days, I often get up at 4 am, just so I could spend a couple of hours before work looking for photos in the midst of the Coast Redwoods. It seems the best way to photograph them is early in the morning, when the fog envelopes the trees separating the foreground trees from the beautiful but overwhelming clutter of the forest. I am still hunting for interesting shots that combine flowering Rhododendrons, the Redwoods, and the early-morning mist, but I am getting closer to finding those photos.
