Fuji 4900z @ 16.7 mm, 1/320 sec, f/4.0, ISO 200, 12 May 2002, No PP
I know this is highlights galore. But, I still like the picture. To me it's a fun picture where my wife is looking out from the inside of an old redwood. The tree is hollow and lying down, it's so big that she could stand up inside it with no problem at all. This is from Avenue of the Giants in Northern California.
I like the natural skin colors and the natural weather bitten look of the wood in the parts that are in shadow.
You may wonder if I'm going to keep publishing old photos from a vacation a few years ago. The answer is that I will continue with this vacation for a little while. I like a lot of the pictures we got on that trip, but it'll not be that many and each picture should be different as they are all from different parts of California. I'll add more recent photos when we get a nice photo from a photo outing.
And if you ever get a chance to visit the northern part of California, just know that you have to see the Avenue of the Giants. It's an experience you'll never forget. I hope to one day go back and wonder off in the woods searching for beautiful pictures of the trees and the nature in this part of the world. If only money were no object…
