Coastal Forest 3

Picking the photo of the month for May 2013 was hard. I have so many photos that I made during the trip from San Diego to Seattle, and I haven’t really gotten to evaluating and processing them all.

The fact that I was not (and am not) really familiar with all the places that we visited doesn’t make it easier: I don’t feel a connection to them yet that would help me see if I actually captured the essence of the place. So I think it’s only natural that in the end, I picked a photo from the forest, which is familiar grounds in a way for me, having roamed the forests of Bavaria and Austria for so long with Toni:

The coastal forest of Northern California and Oregon (this photo was made at Ecola State Park near Cannon Beach, OR) is special because it’s wet and an abundance of moss and lichen overgrows everything. Have a look at the rest of the images in the Coastal Forest Gallery too please, if you like this photo. Prints are available in the gallery in my shop.
