Land of the ewok by PeterJCoskun Land of the ewok by PeterJCoskun
Keeping up with the star wars theme here. How could you not think of such a thing when you see something like this? Light fog in the forest makes for some magical conditions. I would have preferred to come here early in the morning for some sunbeams, but I'm happy with this.

Del norte coast redwoods, California.

Not much of a Star War(rior) myself but I assume you could easily plant (pun absolutely intended) this frame into a lot of fantasy/sci-fi plots. Really digging the glow of the backlit leaves against the old growth. Really striking scene, Peter!

Thanks David I appreciate it, with the right conditions the redwoods can be a great setting for almost any type of story... I at least hope you DON'T like star trek then either haha.

Ha, no worries. Yeah, the Redwoods are great. I just wish I had taken advantage of them, instead of sitting out the bad light at Bandon on my way back from PDX to the Bay. Oh, just excuses to return.

I need to return as well and I just came back from that trip. Can't get anything done when your traveling with all non photographers (ie: my recent trip). Managed some good stuff from each spot though surprisingly.

And now the music's going to be stuck in your head forever when you walk thorough the woods.

Believe me, being in a place that makes you feel so small and the quietness of the area, it's hard to believe something isn't watching you.

Tall trees, growing ferns and vines? Definitely a magical spot, in more ways than one ;)
This is a very nice capture, and the quality is top-notch. :)

Thanks! It really is something else. The size of these trees is hard to comprehend in photos. Even with some sense of scale with other shots I took.
