And life goes on in a different way.

Well said, Dany!

You saw from the terrible pictures what a disappointing day this was. Yet when I found a short trail into this bit of forest, I realized that it was actually better to visit the woods on a day like this. It's so hard to take pictures of a forest when there's the extreme contrast of sunshine and shadow! No sunshine here ...

Cheers, Marilyn

Какое это дерево? Это гигантская секвойя, Marilyn? What is this tree? This is a giant sequoia, Marilyn?

Sequoia, I suppose...very good shot...

Thank you for your comments, Andrey, Eva, Finn, and millotaurus.

Although this is large and red, it is not a "redwood" or sequoia. I believe it is a western red cedar, thuja plicata. They grow very big, and a chemical in the mature trees prevents them from rotting.

I thought "this looks like near here". Sure enought it is. Nice capture. The soft light really works well in these forested areas.

Best regards, Larry
