Deep in the Redwood Forest V.

Posted by
Craig (Vacaville, California, United States) on 27 March 2008 in Plant & Nature and Portfolio.

Butano Redwood State Park (California).

The message below is from our friend Behrooz of BSurprised in memory of Sir Arthur C Clarke who passed away yesterday:

I would like to dedicate a day, let's say the last day of this month March 31th, to his memory, so I decided to suggest a theme for the day.

** Clarke's Day **
Dare to dream, let your imagination run wild, show us that impossible is merely a word in the dictionary. Take an element from his dreams, or yours, and make a picture. It can simply be a sign with the number 2001 on it or a picture of a UFO, but I'm not suggesting anything. It's up to you, my friend.

In case you are interested, please copy this text to your photoblog to spread the word.
Thank you

Wonderful angle and colours in this shot Craig, at first I thought they were little shamrock, but on second look I noticed that there were little daisy type flowers flowers. A wonderful find in the forest.

Way cool fish eye type shot... or is it a fish eye lens? Really love that around the world look (at least it is to me..LOL) The more I look the more I'm really falling into the whole image.

@amy: I used a .45X wide angle converter. Thanks for your comments Amy!

I'm sure for the genus Oxalis. I looked in plants database in Oregon and it seems to be Oxalis oregana! We can see the Sequoia foliage on the ground. Interessant botanical capture...for me! Thanks a lot :-)

@Martine Lapointe: Thanks for the plant identification! Glad you like the photo! Your comments are always appreciated Martine!
