This stand of blooming trees, backed by the elders, is just gently and sweetly beautiful.

The layers of trees each clearly have their own clarity and expression.
A landscape like this is difficult, I think. It's so easy to come away with just a 'mush' of texture.
Here, however, you express the forest beautifully.

How lovely they are, standing aligned in their colors from almost white to dark green. A living palette blown by the wind. Really a poetic shot, for me.

A fine, subtle shot of the variation in greens and textures of these shrubs and trees. Fine, on-the-nose processing.

Great spring trees, Jack. This image would also be a good candidate for the 'orton technique.'

Simply beautiful...I feel as if I'm there. Your photographs from Oregon make me think we should leave our own crowded paradise and change our California license plates and come to Oregon.
