Cee’s Fun Foto Challenge: Wood


The three great elemental sounds in nature are the sound of rain, the sound of wind in a primeval wood, and the sound of outer ocean on a beach.

Two roads diverged in a wood, and I — I took the one less traveled by, and that has made all the difference.

    • Thank you for stopping by and take a “walk” with me, Sue! The first two were taken in Portland and the third is the Capilano Park in Vancouver.


  1. The second photo is absolutely stunning, Amy. So much visible texture and every single leaf is jumping out at me. Love that there is a sliver of sunshine falling over them, it just makes the photo very warm. Did you put a HDR effect on this one? 🙂


    • I took several shots in that spot (the second one), this one caught the sunlight nicely and captures trees better than others. Normally, I don’t expect a good pic come out from a beautiful scene like this place 🙂 I used the filter, which was my first time to experience.


      • Haha! It always pays to take more than one photo when we’re photographing something 🙂 That forest looks like something in a fairy tale story. I’m half expecting ponies to come leaping out of the woods now and fairies flying out of the bushes.


        • That would be a fairy tale story if ponies leap out of the woods and… 🙂 Ponies are the queen of flowers, but we can’t grow here due to the weather. I was able to take time to shoot pics when we were touring the garden on our own. It was much difficult when we were with the tour group like the Spain trip. I was luck to get one quick snap most of the time. 🙂


    • Thank you, Neihtn! I should put a note. The first one was taken at the Multnomah Falls, the second was at the Japanese Garden in Portland, the third was the Capilano Park.


  2. I like all the photos, even the first one. My favorite is the third. I could imagine how many children have ran on that hanging bridge and the tree below to cross that creek.


Thank you for visiting! Love to hear from you...
