Soft rays of filtered sunlight illuminate the towering canopy of an ancient redwood forest, along a winding trail leading down to cliffs above the northern California Coast. Dense summer fog, obscuring distant trees and dripping off rhododendrons at the peak of their blooming season, are great scenes to photograph. The trees are immense and the magenta rhododendron flowers reach far overhead. Late afternoon light is perfect for photography along Damnation Creek Trail through Del Norte Coast Redwoods State Park, one of the many trails that you’ll want to discover. Three state parks have joined to become one National Park. My issue #095 - Redwood National Park, California will help you find the best photography, the best season and the best time to travel.
