At the tail end of a trip down the Oregon coast I stayed one day in the redwoods of northern California, that one day made the entire trip worth it (don’t get me wrong the trip was amazing). the Fog rolling off the ocean into this forest made the atmosphere something special as the morning light filtered through the branches of these Giants.
I was in the passenger seat as we drove down the dirt roads looking for places to stop and photograph when i looked in the rear view mirror and saw this photo, I just opened the door and hopped out with out a word as we were traveling at a crawl. The driver took a few seconds to figure out what happened. after finding the right frame i took the photo and reverently put the camera away as we enjoyed the spectacular fleeting view that last only a few minutes till the sun ducked behind some clouds. to this day i consider this my single best photograph I’ve ever taken.
