Muir Woods

I visited Muir Woods yesterday for a bit of sight seeing and hiking.  I wore my flip-flops while driving there and planned to change into hiking shoes.  However, I forgot my socks!  I did the hiking anyway.  I wouldn't recommend it - my feet were not happy after a day of hiking.

The Muir Woods are a very challenging place to shoot pictures at.  The contrast is very high, the ground is cluttered, its a very chaotic environment.  I found that the best shots used silhouettes.  Here's one example.  It's not purely silhouette-y, but close.  I think it gives a good sense of how dense this grove of young redwoods is.

Who say's you can't see the forest for the trees? I think you did a great job! Simply amazing!
