PhotoHunt: wooden



PhotoHunt: wooden, originally uploaded by tommiea1.

My first attempt at posting a PhotoHunt. This is Muir woods redwood forest north of San Francisco.

When we lived in the east Bay, we would take a little day trip every month. This forest had a little hiking trail through it. We plopped Will in the Kelty backpack carrier. Livi was only two months old or so, so I had her in a baby Bjorn. Once you were under that canapy of the trees, it was so chilly and quiet!

Great first entry to the Photo Hunt, Tommie. I never made it to see the redwoods when I lived out there. It's on my to-do list.

D. and I were in the redwoods last summer. This shot reminds me just how I felt when I was there: small. :)

You're inspiring me to dive into the world of the Photohunt as well: this photo and the backstory both inspire.

I've always loved leaning way back and shooting big, tall objects. Trees, in particular, have such a majesty to them. Photos like this remind me why we need to respect our planet more than we already do.
