Massive Trees of the Hoh Rain Forest
Photographer: Fred Wasmer
Location: Olympic National Park, Washington
You feel in awe while walking through the Hoh Rain Forest. Massive trees surrounded you; it's like being in a cathedral built, not of brick or stone, but of living creatures. If you look carefully, you'll see very little in this photo that isn't alive. Even the fallen logs are encased in moss and lichen. I've always found it difficult to photography a forest from the inside; the contrast is often too great to allow a satisfying photograph. But on this day, a light rain soften the scene.
