One thing that many first-time visitors to the Pacific Northwest comment on is how green it is. There is greenery worldwide; however, it's a unique green along the coastal regions of Oregon, Washington, and British Columbia, especially on the Olympic Peninsula and Vancouver Island.
With regular weather fronts moving in from the Pacific Ocean, then meeting the coastal mountains, where the clouds release their moisture, tremendous amounts of precipitation fall on the region, creating the magnificent temperate rain forests.
With annual rainfall measuring in feet rather than inches, the forests immediately along the coast thrive in the mild and wet climate.
Unfortunately, many of the US's ancient forests are long gone; the only signs are massive rotting stumps of time past.
You can still see what once existed in the forests of yesteryear; however, you'll have to visit one of the national parks or wilderness areas.
One extraordinary place to see old forests are in the Olympic National Park in Washington state.
On a day trip last fall, I paid a visit to explore the Queets Rain Forest (one of the four different rain forests on the national park's western part).
In these rain forests, you will find beautiful, dense moss-covered forests.
Without foggy conditions to soften the background, locating a subject within the dense undergrowth can be a photographic challenge. When exploring forested areas to photograph, I look for a break in the undergrowth to find something of visual interest to isolate. Often this break is a trail, water, meadow, or sometimes a natural opening in the foliage.
While tromping through the bush, I came across a break in the forest where I could photograph this majestic moss-covered tree.
Even though the tree was backlit, there was enough soft light to bring out the darkness's details, including the dense mossy forest floor.
I shot this photograph with my Nikon Z7 using a Nikkor Z 24-70/4 S lens. My camera settings were ISO 64, 68 mm, f11, 1.0 second.
