“100 Acre Wood”

The Hall Of Mosses, at Hoh Rain Forest provides a myriad of mystical forest views. This natural archway had a symmetry to it, that was hard to ignore.

One of the hikes, that we did at our recent “Tracing The Upper Left” workshop, was the Hall Of Mosses, in the Hoh Rain Forest, Olympic National Park. The rain forest provides a richly diverse set of environs and offers something special for photographers. The scenes can be complex and challenging, but carefully considering composition can yield great results.

I noted this bent tree, arching over the trail and thought it would make the centerpiece of a very nice image. Ultimately the range of light needed to be carefully managed, but the results, I think, are worth the effort.

Fairly straight forward composition, in centering the archway, leaving thirds to the left and right of it. Would likely also work just fine as a square crop, need to try that as well.
