In the Redwoods

Claudia and I have been up in the redwood country, in far northern California, for the past two weeks. We had such a great time during my Mystic Forest workshop. Like last year, we stayed at the Requa Inn, with its great food, relaxing atmosphere, and beautiful views. We had a wonderful group of people, and I already miss the energy of the group learning and photographing together. And we had great weather, with lots of fog! Here’s one image from our first morning, with the sun breaking through the fog and creating a spectacular triple corona. I’ll post more photographs soon as I get time to process them.

    Gorgeous photo, Michael!
    I lived in the redwoods for 20 years, and that nails it.

    Superb. Very ethereal.

  3. I’m partial to my father’s Redwoods photography and few have ever surpassed it, but you’re making the best run for it I’ve seen in the last 20 years with this amazing photograph. Wow. What timing.
