Forest Arch


It is common to see fallen trees in the wild forests of Canada's west coast. The wood of the cedar in particular lasts a long time after the tree had died. But you don't often see an "arch", where a fallen trunk is left in the air by falling onto a stump.

This picture's exposure was quite long and made on a breezy day. It is interesting to see how the areas with motion are rendered (see below) especially when seen against the very sharp texture of the trunks.
