Sleepy Morning – Evergreen Forest in Coastal California

Purchase Image Download:

A thin fog blanket drifts over the peaceful evergreen forests of coastal California,
in Russian Ridge Open Space.

This is a photograph I had wanted in my portfolio for a long time. The forest vistas from Russian Ridge, which include views of redwood other evergreen forests in Big Basin and Portola State Parks, are at the same time intimate and stunning – a combination which is hard to capture. After attempting in many types of light and conditions, I feel I have finally captured this enigma. This is taken shortly after sunrise with the landscape compressed by a 480mm focal length, and the thin wispy fog adding just enough interest.
