Canyon Of Ferns⠀ ⠀ A magical and seemingly prehistoric canyon in Redwoods National Park. OK, I know it IS prehistoric...but I mean going in there feels like going back to the Jurassic Period. ⠀ Canon 5D Mark IV, 24-70mm f/2.8L II, Breakthrough Photography polarizer, 24mm, F/16, ISO 100. Two exposures at 0.4 and 3.2 seconds blended for dynamic range⠀ #redwoodsnp #mysteriousgreen #teamcanon #cascadiaexplored #givebacktonature
People commented the post
: That place is so cool, but I found it difficult to get a good shot there and without people. Nicely done!
: I’ve never come away with much of a shot there but I always enjoy going. If you hike the trail north past the canyon along the cliff for about a mile there are a couple really tall waterfalls. The best one is called gold dust falls. Really nice after a rain. Nice shot, Sean.
: Lovely image. Love that green reflected light!
: @tcalvarez96 Haha! Careful camera placement and ruthless image selection. I have SO many shots that never escape my hard drive. And Ansel famously said that landscape photography is all about knowing where to stand. 😆
: @zackatak71 Thanks for the tip Zack. I’ll have to hike further one of these days. I’m convinced with the right atmosphere that there could be a really good photo in there somewhere.
: @c.baker.photo Very difficult. More and more people all the time.
: @seanbagshaw agreed...how much do y’all think IG is increasing threats to sweet places that used to take more than one click to find? Seems to me more than it’s helping preservation... 🌬💚🌲 #norcallove
: Nice! I was just there too. Came away with some different but a sweet area
: @tronaldregham I do think that is a major problem. That’s why I’m no longer sharing exact locations. And I’m not sharing any location location for places that aren’t already well known and publicized on the internet. I’m a member of the @naturefirst_org Alliance. Check them out. The fact that this spot is in a NP and right next to one of the most popular campsites around has also had a big affect in this situation. #naturefirst
: @amal_alali3 امل عبدالله يستحي لا يسالك كم مره مره انكتي من رجال بعده والا للحينت شريفه!!!!! ويش صار على خطيبك اللس خطبك وصورن صحباتك خطوبتكم وهياطكم جاوبيه لانو يستحي لا يسالك @abdullah_abn_hamad
: @seanbagshaw good to hear! I’m very familiar w the spot; and agree geotagging anywhere leads to more clueless and disrespectful visits... seems the hunting of nature photography away from one’s home is also not really #naturefirst.... glad you’re thinking about it too ✊🏼🤙🏼
: @zackatak71 🙁uhoh Zach you broke the new rule! Now everyone will go! Shame shame 😊
: I love that place 🌿🌿🌿
