Re: Pine Cone Macros

Thanks for the replies and complements guys! There was no activity on this post for several days after I posted so I forgot I even had these here! I think pine cones are pretty neat. They all do the same thing in a little different way and with a little different structure. M.D., I'm looking at wide...

Pine Cone Macros

I've been getting more into photography recently and have collected pine cones at various parks near my house.

Re: Rocky River Reservation

Thanks Matt! I've been goofing around with wider apertures to get the blurred background and create a dreamy effect. You may have seen this on Facebook, but this is another shot from the same area in the Rocky River Reservation of a downed tree. I don't remember the species though. https://farm4.sta...

Re: Hi there from a german redwood lover

Welcome to the board Frank! Also, thanks for sharing the informatin about the Sequoia plantations in Germany. That's really interesting to see them thriving there. I knew of some successful planting in the UK and Belgium, but didn't know about the Sequoia Farm in Germany. I got to visit Sequoia Nati...

Rocky River Reservation

I hiked around the Rocky River Reservation near my home and took some shots yesterday morning. https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3949/15626014192_584f96ef17_b.jpg One of the eastern red cedars that grows near the cedar point area of the park. There are actually some pretty sizeable red cedars in the pa...

Re: Cook Forest Photos

Thanks for the compliment Erik! Tree photography is hard. It's easier out west where some of the specimens are enormous. Just having somebody in the frame is enough to convey their size. These guys are tricky and they block alot of light which makes it hard to get a good exposure. I look forward to ...

Re: Cook Forest Photos

Thanks Bob! I agree. Cook Forest is a gem here in the east. I've enjoyed both of my visits and hope to return in the winter. It has such a different character from the deciduous forests near Cleveland. The hemlock dominance is incredible too. We have hemlocks here in Cleveland, but they seem to hide...

Cook Forest Photos

My wife and I took a short trip to Cook Forest on Saturday. Here a few of the better photos I got. The hemlock forest is difficult to photograph. https://farm3.staticflickr.com/2909/14129573548_8a57e1af0f_c.jpg https://farm4.staticflickr.com/3768/14314392442_9ed1e3da26_c.jpg https://farm4.staticflic...
