Redwoods and Rays
 

Rays through Redwoods, Guerneville, California
 

Guerneville, California
 

The edges of the leaves and branches of this redwood tree, along with the strong backlighting and dense fog, combine to cause a diffraction effect, producing these spectacular rays of light radiating outward from the sun. There is so much light, and the rays are so well defined, that this scene takes on almost mystical proportions. The high-contrast picture is almost monochromatic, using a palette of pastel greens.
