Clover Carpet

Clover Carpet

Haven't done much photography lately, and I'm still in the Philippines so this is another shot from the archives: A rare section of the redwoods where ground is literally carpeted with clovers.

The trail really did look red-ish like it does in the picture, a result of the redwood bark used in making the trail. One thing I've gotten into the habit of doing and I sest others do as well is to tell the park ranger that you are a photographer and ask if they have any "lesser known" sestions for you to photograph. It's a great way to see some beautiful and unexpected things and not just come out of the parks with the standard comp all the time.

As for processing, luminosity masks, dodging/burning, and some softening here and there. I'm really learning a lot in the processing department, but my biggest frustration was not being able to convert this to a web version that I was satisfied with. The soft foggy type light coming through in the back of the shot just does not look right in a small size.

Thanks for looking!



So, these houses go UP.

The quickest way up is via sets of narrow stairs.

The first flight was the standard straight up, carpeted, 16 steps. Similar to something you would find in an older house in the U.S., not like a staircase from a new development. From there you turned down a little hallway and up these twisty ones.

There were 16 steps, all very small (I wear a size 9) and of varying degrees of being level. Excellent experience and I couldn't have done it without the handrail.
