seeing the trees for the forest

  1. Lovely Gunta, thanks for sharing your walk with us. There is a forestry commission controlled forest not far from me and they have a wheelchair friendly trail so I’m looking forward to being able to visit again. It’s mainly evergreens as in your forest here so not much of a show come the autumn but still a pleasure to visit.


    • Coming from New England like you, hubby (a native Oregonian) used to correct me all the time about calling the trees pine. Mostly what grows out here is fir and spruce. I get the impression there’s very little pine. I’ve had to adapt. πŸ˜‰


  2. Great set of photos Gunta! Yes, it is always difficult to photograph in the forest on a bright sunny day. I either prefer early morning or late afternoon but even better, when it is overcast. Actually, that’s true with just about all my outdoor photography.
