Afternoon walk through the forest, anticipating snowfall
I usually travel this path on skis. McGowan Trail in Lassen Volcanic Park is a favorite spot. These little trees reaching upwards soon to be covered speak of the need to grow upwards. The afternoon sun highlighting these saplings caused me to take extra measures to capture the feeling of what my eyes were seeing.
Shot with Canon 30D and 10mm using 3 exposures. combined in HDR Pro to combat the contrast range, then further processed in Silver Effects Pro.
