Sequoia Coast Redwoods - Muir Woods National Monument

Dreams under the redwoods. This is Muir Woods (named after the naturalist John Muir) just north of San Francisco across the Golden Gate Bridge. Muir Woods National Monument was established to protect this old-growth coast redwood forest from destruction, and is one of the few places in the area which still has an old-growth forest of coast redwoods.

I used a small aperture (f/22) to get this starburst effect of the sun coming through the trees. This is an HDR processed from 8 exposures each 1 stop apart, and then I added a bit of vignette & blur around the edges to give it a bit of dreamy feel.

You may also be interested in my Mighty Coastal Redwoods photo also taken in John Muir Woods.
