The Weekend in Black and White

Here are a few photos of the deeply forested areas in Golden Ears Park in Maple Ridge, B.C.
It was a cloudy, rainy dismal day when these were taken.

The fog was low lying in the forest, lending an ethereal quality to the forest.
The thick mossy vegetation on the forest floor and moss all over lended to the gloomy quality the cloudy day held.

These are beautiful! The first one is my favorite with the 'arms' of that tree reaching out horizontally. This really balances all the vertical elements in such a pleasing treescape. Nice to capture this in one photo.
I also like the lighting off to the left side which makes the scene full of depth and beauty. Great set of photos.

I love second one - ethereal is just the word I think. The branches in the first are something I've never seen. They seem so alive.

An enchanting atmosphere in these mystical trees! Beautiful!

These are excellent in monochrome! The fog really adds to the gloominess. I suspect not much sun gets through in the summer.

Oh, these are beautifully eerie. I wouldn't want to be walking there alone.
