An image of a cottonwood from Zion NP in snow and Fog using a Hasselblad H4D 50. I also have a really nice panoramic shot on film from this spot.

I have been photographing this week and next in the rainforest on Vancouver Island. I have attached a Panoramic image taken a few years ago with a Horseman 617 with Velvia 50 Film.

That level of compositional order over so much rainforest material is reassuring.  I do imagine, though, I would still want to watch my step.

Hi Bruce

Thanks for the feedback. I had to crawl over a few fallen trees and brace the tripod and stand on another fallen tree to get the shot. I have spent 7 years photographing in this forest. Over the next six days I have three or four more trips planned to this area. Once the leaves leaf out you are done. The moss just drips off the trees, it feels very prehistoric.

Great lighting, Matt. I'll bet that looks good in a big print.


And another belated thanks Eric.  I am itching to print this one.
Planning to send a few away to get printed on Canson rag photographique as Brandt suggested for another of my images.

These last three of yours all would look great on the Canson.

I've been up in the British Columbia rainforest with my friend Steven Friedman and his lovely wife.  It rained 16 inches but we managed to shoot every minute possible.  Great trip more spur of the moment when you get the itch to shoot but wanted it to do it for years.  Here is a couple shots.

During the search for an old embrasure of the First World War (Cannoniera della Vernuga, Grosio), I found this spot.

I have found rainforest (with the exceptional of very old growth areas) to be so busy and cluttered with different textures that it's very difficult to find pleasing compositions that are clean and simple. And, yes, the need to focus your brain on what is around you in order to find those compositions is in direct opposition with the need to focus on the ground so you don't trip or slip,yet again.
Nice job Steven!

I like it.

You might do well to name the spot.  What seems to me to be a grown over and then burned over terrace could support quite a number of "historical" imaginings and moral examples.

Hi Paul

Thanks for the feedback and thoughts. I have attached another rainforest image. I am still trying to decide if I like the colour or black and white image. The density may be off a bit. I did these just before I left. I will post both and see what people think. This one was taken ten days ago on a shhot on Vancouver Island with Tim Wolcott. We had a great time. Tim has incredible passion for photography and the pursuit of the ultimate image. This week we are shooting dogwood and redbud trees in the Smoky mtns. I have three weeks for this shoot.
