This is sort of moss heaven for me...This is how this photo was created...It is never a good idea to get a new camera a few days before you go on a photography trip, it is an even worse idea to go on a trip with an entirely new camera system, but this is what I did. I don't recommend it, but it was a good thing that I had this camera, because it rained endlessly and this camera kept going, even though I kept fiddling with the wrong buttons. This is one of the first photographs I made of a group of trees that is no longer there. I loved the way the trees in the front somehow framed the smaller ones in the background. The fog that you see if actually a raincloud. In a mountain forest fog often means standing in a very wet rain cloud and still being totally happy about the atmosphere it creates. In this case the greens became very vibrant due to the rain and this makes this a really saturated image.
