Natural landscapes: the delicate spring light


This Vancouver Island provincial park is probably better known as Cathedral Grove, referring to the drive through an incredible old-growth Pacific rainforest. That’s where my wife and I stopped and hiked along the easy trails flanking Highway 4.
During the hike, I spotted a shaft of light slipping through the trees and illuminating this growth. A shallow depth of field was important, keeping the background out of focus and helping you concentrate on the flower and leaves.
