I like the soft feel and the fog in the trees! Great light that shows off the greens!

@Scott F. Schilling: Thanks, Scott. The fog moving across made it worth stomping through the wet grass.

Michael Rawluk from Williams Lake, BC, Canada

The mist really gives it a magical mist ical feel.

In this image I would highlight the mysterious halo that creates the fog! A palette of vivid green and pleasant! A delightful place to breathe fresh air in the company. The solitude here is too strong and intimidating! Muchos besos amigo Jack!

@Fonts: I went stomping through wet grass to get this. Kisses.

This place has a very peaceful feel to it.....(but perhaps I'm wrong and are there bears around...;-)))
Great capture tough!

The forest as I like it, foggy, wet, nice-smelling, mesmerizing, mysterious, green and beautiful

YEs, I like this one, too, Jack. I have always loved the look of fog as it swirls and encircles and just kinda hangs around scenes like this - the Doug Firs look like Guardians at the entrance to this Mystical Forest...great mood here and you convey it perfectly - it has been centuries since I visited Silver Falls so my wife and I are looking forward to this series.

With the fog it is even more mysterious, very beautiful shot. Good day.

I like the lush greens of the woods and the fog that adds to the charm of the shot.
A nice one.

PD from Overland Park, Kansas, United States

Nice color and I love the fog. At my workshop we didnt get much fog - I guess that was unusual.

30 Jun 2010 2:49pm

@PD: There are some months along the California Coast when there is almost no fog.

Philip from South Wales, United Kingdom

The mist of the waterfall adds a nice touch. You can feel its presence to the left.

30 Jun 2010 2:59pm

@Philip: Actually there is no waterfall in this area. The closest one is a few hundred yards to the right.

Hilde Morin from Portland, Oregon, United States

I like your forest/water fall compositions...different then what I tend to photograph and great learning experience. I look forward to more pics of all these so familiar places :))

30 Jun 2010 3:11pm

@Hilde Morin: Thanks, Hilde. As you know, we were at the two most popular waterfall areas in Oregon. And, as you also know, Western Oregon has amazing waterfalls all over the place; they are just not clumped together in bunches.

I really like the mist ... or perhaps low cloud you captured, in contrast to the greens.

When I drove to work this morning, the mist was hanging low and I thought what a great photo it would make and here is yours. Just beautiful and mystical.

fantastic shot! It does seem very mystical or magical...did you see any fairies or elves on your hike?

I'm waiting for the elves to appear from behind the trees, such an enchanting landscape!
