I love going through my "contact sheets" in Lightroom. I rediscover images, and often I feel the essence of what it was that drew me to sit with the subject. This photograph is right on the road. I must have driven past it a thousand times (no exaggeration) while driving to and from Klamath and Crescent City.
I saw these scenes, but I never could figure out how to capture them until I was able to stop and sit within the forest. Driving past just did not allow the time for me to feel the spirit of the forest.
