Oh my goodness, I don't know where to begin. This is just marvelous, Maria. The light, the light, the light - that's what we all say and you prove, time and time again, that your mastery and usage of the special light is so powerful. This unique ability and talend is fully evident here. The light resting upon the trees and elements and then emitting this special glow is just jawpdropping. The color contrasts are so wonderful. This image is an amusement opark for the eye!! FUn and excitement everywhere one looks! I so miss the Monterey Peninsula just for places like this, but what you do absolutely,, with all of your images, takes all of it to a different level. Don was absolutely right, you could publish a book about the peninsula - no, you SHOULD do a book on the peninsula!! This is great Maria - I love it....

This is the second really nice image I have seen you do of the orange lichen. These are such beautiful trees and you have captured this one at its best. Great use of backlight!
