This was on the last day of the workshop that I and my good friend Chris Byrne hosted on the southern Oregon coast and the California Redwoods.
When our group hit this trail there was no evidence for hope to have any conditions other than sunshine, but when we got about 100 yards up the trail a fog came sifting in through the trees from the ocean creating an epic ending to the workshop.
The feeling of standing in the big trees, especially if it’s your first time is pretty incredible, but when you’re standing in the big trees and the sun beams start radiating at you from above… it’s life changing.
This is a single exposure hand held. I was very busy helping my clients during changing and challenging light so my settings… and even my composition, weren’t well thought out. I just jacked up my ISO, flipped it to Aperture Priority tried to look at my Live View and hoped for the best. Taken with my trusty D850 and my excellent Tamron 24-70 f/2.8.
