That tree in the Hoh Rainforest

In November 2012 my friends Jeff and Yani and I took a day trip out to the Hoh Rainforest in Olympic National Park. It’s a gorgeous, dense green and mossy forest with some beautiful old trees and I shared some images on previous posts – The emerald in my emerald city and Walking through the Hoh Rainforest.

I had a chance to scan my 35mm film from that day trip and my favorites are of that tree in the Hoh Rainforest. That one tree: dripping in emerald moss, decorated with orange and red autumn leaves and soaring over my head, left quite the impression on me. It was so huge and towering and full of waving mossy branches that I didn’t know where to begin snapping pictures. I felt like it was a staging for some magical HBO special. The following photos were taken with my Nikon F3HP with Fuji Pro00H film.

Enjoy and mahalo for stopping by! Happy shooting.

  1. The Hoh is rediculously beautiful, and yet we never get out there for some reason. I love these fully dressed trees, but they’re so hard to capture. Your middle photo, I think, does it best. Somehow reminds me of UrRus from the Dark Crystal!

  2. Holee sh!t, Jana! These are wonderful. That first one, just brilliant, so byoootiful; where are the wood sprites!

    Man, that extra layer in the Fuji film worked great for this.
