Vine Maple and Ancient Douglas Fir
I have been to this location several times over the years to photograph the leaves on this maple against the bark of the huge douglas fir. I was there this time to record the leaves yellow against the brown bark but was too early and when I returned a few weeks later, the wind was blowing too much to get a decent image and the next day and a few days after that, my efforts were thwarted by heavy rain… sometimes I get the picture I want and sometimes something different and sometimes just meet nice folks while waiting for the wind to stop. I guess I could have been sitting in an office somewhere getting rich.
