Southern Humboldt Milky Way over Towering Redwoods on the Avenue of the Giants in Humboldt County, California.
Humboldt Redwoods State Park
Of late when I'm excited about an image I tend to post an early version before it's ready, and then as I let it steep, I'll continue to edit until I think it's done.
I photographed these trees a week ago, and I posted the early version of this on my wall thinking of it as practice for the next time I visit this spot in a few days. I didn't think that I would do anything further with it. But the image grew on me, and I became more excited about it and couldn't help but continue to fiddle with it, until now I think it's pretty done, and I'm happy with it.
