Redwoods are best shot with fog or mist, to soften the otherwise harsh light. Best of all is to shoot redwoods just as the sun, still filtered by mists, begins to make an impact, bringing out the colors. This photo was taken in the morning, with mists still clinging in the background, with the sun, tinted by smoke from distant forest fires, beginning to break through and lighten the redwoods in the foreground. Shot with the Pentax K-5iis and the DA 17-70 f4 lens; .8 second exposure, f8 aperture, ISO 80. A polarizer was used to minimize glare off foliage.

Even though this contest is limited to residents of the United States, it should be offered that others may make submissions, just that they cannot win a prize.
