California Woods

Come with me to a place on the southeastern side of Cincinnati.  A site that is located not too far from the Ohio river.  This place is filled with rolling hills covered with families of trees and crisscrossed with long winding trails that seem to go on forever.  Listen quietly and you can hear the birds chattering away, talking about the latest bird gossip.  Get lost in the woods and discover new and interesting plants and trees.  It’s a great place to be on a warm and sunny winter day.

  1. Nice Seth, you’ve found California! Hahaha. Nice. Looks exactly like a place we go to on the outskirts of Berlin – Müggelsee – I can see my daughter running through those trees, but, we still buried in snow and minus numbers. These pics are light in the tunnel. Very Nice. Thanks

    • Thanks Tasha. I think forest pictures are the hardest to take.(Esp in the summer). It’s so beautiful when you are there but it often looks busy in a photo. 🙂

  2. ‘Remains’ is pretty stark and beautiful. The monochrome highlights the only exception: the green of decay that will soon turn vibrant with the dawn of spring. thank you for sharing this.

  3. I love this series and I couldn’t help but think of a scene in Seigfried, the third opera in Wagner’s opera tetralogy, Der Ring des Nibelungen. The story is too long to summarize, in total the Ring ends up being about a 16 hour opera. Siegfried finds himself in a forest that murmurs to him and ultimately a bird speaks to him (the flute). The music is beautiful and seems to fit well with your pictures. I apologize for the long comment, but I love opera, adore Wagner, and I’m absolutely obsessed with the Ring. Check out the music for yourself on youtube here…

  4. I love old oaks. Thick trunks and widespread branches covered in leaves. But whenever I see the type of trees you have taken such lovely pics of I for some reason think of young warriors..
