Winter Trail

DSC_1593

The lowland forests of the Pacific Northwest are usually snow free most of the winter. The trails are muddy sometimes… but not as crowded as in the summer. Occasionally you will have to climb over a tree that has blown down. But the solitude and quiet are worth it.

View of the Quilcene River Canyon from the Falls View Campground nature loop, Olympic National Forest. It always amazes me where the trees will go to escape the loggers.

Quilcene River in Winter

DSC_1603

There is a short loop trail that runs from the Falls View Campground in the Olympic National Forest. It’s a nice walk through the woods, but there isn’t a lot of access to the river bank. This is one of the few. A nice winter walk … especially when the river is running low and not all angry like.

Trees and Mist

This is along the Elwha River in Olympic National Park. The sun was going down and backlit the trees with the mists behind them. The line of trees along the ridge line is a nice touch that I didn’t notice at the time.

Alders, Maples and Mist

This is another shot from the Madison Falls parking lot in the Olympic National Park along the Elwha River. I really liked the pink blush of new growth on the tops of the alders… that’s what attracted me to taking the shot. But then I changed it in B&W and liked it even more. I use the Lightroom plugin version of Silver Efex Pro2 for the initial conversion to B&W and then use Photoshop for detail enhancements.
