Default Hidden Trail

My lady and me stayed at a small isolated motel along the north California coast near the Oregon border. She discovered a trail behind the motel and we were amazed at its lush beauty with a surprise at the end (five shot panorama). I was shooting a lightweight 28-105 Tamron that although a nice casual lens just could not quite resolve the subjects, but my goodness this trail was something.

Great trail...beautifully photographed. The mushroom pix I like very much....golden brown...fresh out of the oven ?

The panorama view of the sea....lovely.

A good day on the trail with camera.

I note you indicated that your friend discovered the trail. I find that my wife also has an eye for the photographable. As a result, she is an essential part of my photographic kit...although I wouldn't phrase it to her...quite like this.

I like all the shots, the first is my favorite of the path shots but the pano that's got them all.

My lady is also my wife and loves going on my outdoors photo shoots. Thanks for the compliments folks. I wish I had a prime lens with me. We've hiked in a lot of places, but this trail had us gasping at how it enfolded us with its lush beauty.

Nice lush forest shots, but the coastal pano is the true winner.
