Photo Of The Day By Harry Lichtman

Photo By Harry Lichtman

Today’s Photo Of The Day is “Cloud Forest” by Harry Lichtman. Location: Rangeley Lakes Region, Maine.

“While the grand vistas are often the prize of the landscape hunter, I find the more subtle intimate nature images more difficult to find but equally gratifying as nailing the big view,” says Lichtman. “These tree tops caught my eye during a fog-filled morning near Rangeley Lake in the western mountains of Maine. Morning fog often evaporates quickly as the sun rises, so I needed to race amongst the trees to find just the right balance, spacing and arrangement of trees for a successful image. So while the view is one of peace and calm, finding this angle was anything but that experience. Once I settled on this view, I could relax a bit and watch as the fog moved among the trees to create varying degrees of opacity. Ultimately one of my favorite intimate shots of the past year.”
