It is amazing to me how light can transform. This wonderful rock formation came alive in the extraordinary light this summer on a recent hike at Big South Fork National Recreation Area.

While I was in Oregon I made a side trip to one of my favorite destinations, Redwoods National Park in California. I watched the weather as I approached the area from the north. The closer I got the brighter and clearer the day became. Bright contrasty conditions are generally terrible for photography in the forest. I pressed on anyway and when I arrived at the trailhead the light was so harsh that I considered not making the 4 mile hike I had originally planned.

“I’m here now might as well go for it and hope for another gift from nature” I thought. I hiked about a mile and a half  and just as I reached the ridge and began my descent toward the ocean a beautiful fog rolled in from the ocean. The forest was aglow with beautiful light, a gift from Nature.

“We must learn to reawaken and keep ourselves awake, not by mechanical aids, but by an infinite expectation of the dawn…”- Henry David Thoreau

There is nothing quite like hiking a trail in the still cool air of morning. Here is an image from an early morning hike that I made this past spring in north Alabama.
