Twisted Tree Branches in Fog, Marin County, California

Twisted Tree Branches in Fog, Marin County, California

After having been sick for more than a month, I recently had my first photoshoot of the year. My plan A was to do a 10-mile hike early in the morning but that didn’t work out due to a road closure so I ended up at one of the nearby places that I was familiar with because I didn’t want to squander the beautiful fog that was hanging around the mountains. I spent all morning wandering around the forests here. I could spend all day shooting tree pictures to be honest. Shooting tree photos is very therapeutic for me. A much different feeling that shooting sunsets. Shooting beautiful sunsets feels more like a shot of adrenaline that quickly wears off.

  1. I’m right there with you, Richard. Oaks in winter are especially photogenic. Glad you’re better. I’m just getting my second cold in 3 weeks, yet still feel the need for some tree therapy myself. 🙂

  2. Great story Richard! Making the most of whatever plan ends up happening is what separates success from failure!

    Serendipity. This word is one my Grandfather (Vincent J. Schaefer) used frequently. As a result of experiments going in an unexpected direction, amazing things happened (he discovered the process to capture snowflakes, for a closer examination of the crystal structure. From that, he went on to invent the process for cloud seeding and so much more).

    You ended up in your happy-place not by mere chance; the road-closure was probably just what you needed to get back outdoors…but not over-do the first outing (which could have set you back with more illness).
