Humboldt Redwoods

Visiting Humboldt Redwoods State Park was a pleasant surprise. Humboldt Redwoods is one of California’s largest state parks, and comprises over 17,000 acres of primeval old-growth coastal redwoods, the largest remaining contiguous old-growth coastal redwoods in the world. The trees here are thousands of years old and have never been logged. We ended photographing Humboldt Redwoods a couple times because of the stark beauty of this place. What makes this redwoods grove unique is the lush understory of the forest; the whole forest floor was covered in the green redwoods sorrel. If you look hard enough you can find that lucky four leaf clover. That morning we headed back to Humboldt Redwoods State Park hoping for some fog. To our excitement, we found some as the fog was rolling in the valley. I disappeared in the redwood forest looking for compositions. The diffused light illuminating the forest was incredible as found this solo tree with the fog beams. Humboldt Redwoods State Park is great location for photographing the redwoods.
