Amazing shot from Dave Morrow!
 
Enchanted - Quinault Rain Forest, Washington

I've just finished planning the first two major trips of 2015. First, 2 weeks in the American Southwest with +Conor MacNeill, secondly, a month in the Patagonia region of South America with +Paul Weeks.
These should be a good way to kick things off this year. During each trip I'll also be scouting for new Star Photography Workshop & Tour destinations for 2016. These will be announced in April or May of 2015. 

In the coming week or so I also have a bunch of new / free video tutorials to share with you all. Stay tuned:)

The Shot
A 14 mile hike into the Quinault rainforest will lead you to this location and the so called Enchanted Valley. Paul Weeks & I hiked out here for a few days this past summer. After arriving we ate then went to sleep immediately as the rain started to pour. 

The night was fairly cold and we awoke to frost on the ground and fog drifting through the valley as well as early morning mist rising from the soil and grass. This tree could be seen directly out of my tent door, so I got up and shot it immediately before the fog dissipated.

All this atmosphere made for quite a scene. The fog you see in this photo was actually gone within a few seconds. Small patches would roll through the valley very quickly then disappear. The cool part about quickly moving patches such as this is that a long exposure of 3-4 seconds really gives it the feel of movement in the photo. 

When taking this image I knew right out that it would be in black and white. Rarely does this happen to the degree it did that day, but now that I finally got around to processing the image I feel that it turned out pretty well. 

Hopefully you enjoy!

Thanks for Looking,
Dave

What an awesome article! Well done.
As residents of the Pacific Northwest, we are very fortunate to be surrounded by remote areas and beautiful landscapes that yield dark skies. Those dark skies bring great opportunities to view the stars, just a short distance from our homes.

This tutorial is so clear and articulate that, even as an amateur photo bug, I understand and learn from Dave. Thanks so much!
