Inspired by a San Francisco local photographer photographed in the woods with his FF 16-35mm for trees and 70-200mm for close ups. The widest lenses I have are O12/2 and P12-35/2.8. I recently acquired a new PL8-18mm. I planed and took a short getaway camping trip in the Humbolt Redwoods State Park. I brought along G9 & EM10.4, PL8-18 and P35-100/2.8 to try what I could do in the woods.

The Park spans 35,000 acres and about 1/3 is old-growth redwood forest. There are more than a 100-mile of hiking trails and the 32-mile Avenue of the Giants scenic drive with stops for the Giants. I hiked some miles and made some stops on the scenic drive.

Here are some wide shots with the PL8-18...

So good. Photography in the woods is a subject I have a difficult time with. There’s so much going on and I have a tough time composing good and interesting images.
Well done.

Thank you so much! I much appreciate it! I constantly looked for interesting subjects and around what to include/exclude before I point my camera. The most difficulty is the lighting. Quite dark in the shade with extreme bright light shies through the trees. Dialed exposure composition quite a bit and needed to keep rechecking the shots. Also sometime not much space to move around on narrow trails. After all, it was quite a fun experience.
