What a terrific forest, very wild, and somehow with "primitive" remainings... take care of Mr T.Rex.. I've heard that he likes walking around... :-)

I love this photo, Jack! The fog and the forest trail just made me decide to head out into the woods!

Oh! This is spectacular! It looks like an ancient forest, something right out of The Legend of Sleepy Hollow. Gorgeous!

Barbara from Florida, United States

Magnificent! Like an enchanted forest. It would be my favorite place to walk too.

17 Jan 2009 2:17pm

@Barbara: Corvallis, Barbara, has extraordinary hiking trails everywhere. This scene is just a few minutes from a bustling city. It is wonderful to be able to so easily recover ones sanity.

JJ from Jersey City, United States

I agree with Barbara it is like an enchanted forest so beautifully captured, I am lucky to be able to walk around the big apple every day but I do miss walks in the beautiful country like you have captured here

Great scenery, love how the trees look like...and the dog makes a hillarious contrast, it doesn't seem to fit there at all. Well captured :)

Into the great wide open. A wonderful scene. Just the sort of location I spend a lot of time walking and thinking in. Superbly captured, Jack

baobab from Cambridge, United States

lovely tones in this shot. I like the sense of mystery created by the mist, the atmospheric lichen-clad trees, and the innocence of the fluffy white dog.

17 Jan 2009 5:00pm

@baobab: Beau thinks that he is the center of the Universe. He loves being out on the trails.

Ambiance de cette forêt un peu mystérieuse... et cet homme qui y pénètre d'un pas décidé alors que le chien hésite..

Thank you for your invitation! My sister is not a photographer, and you know how difficult it is to photograph with a non-photographer along. But, I will keep you in mind.

Diane Schuller from Hythe, Canada

this looks like heaven-on-earth. I love the detail and textures but above all, I adore the moment you captured here -- it's what I refer to as life's sweet ordinary. wonderful.

21 Jan 2009 5:36pm

@Diane Schuller: Thank you, Dianne. That trail is in a Nature Preserve that is about 10 min. from the bustle of Corvallis. It is a mystical place.
Where is Hythe?
