Photo Of The Day By Beth Young

Photo By Beth Young

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Fern and Clover Forest Sunburst” by Beth Young. Location: Redwood State Park, California.

“This particular grove of redwoods has a gorgeous carpet of clover on the forest floor, but I found it a challenging location for compositions due to bright, sunny skies and a general busyness from many spindly saplings,” explains Young. “When I concentrated instead on the foliage at my feet rather than the busy woodland around me, I came away with compositions I liked much better, including this one of the sun breaking through the forest canopy and casting a morning glow on these lush ferns in the foreground.”

Canon EOS R5. Exposure: 0.8 seconds, f/14, ISO 500.
