    Beautiful! Great exposure in shadows.

  • Thank you Ray4 cam. I see many pretty forests and have tried to photograph them but the pictures never seem to turn out well. The sun rays helped this scene.

    A Jane Best Rembrandt. The contrast is excellent, brought about by the dense forest ant timing/location of the sun for this take. I like the frame you are showing. Blue Ridge is one beautiful part of this country, thanks for the memories.

  • Thank you k253. I saw lots of motorcyclists on the parkway enjoying the spring scenery!
