Day Late and a Dollar short

Apparently yesterday was the "International Day of Trees and Forests". Obviously I missed it. So in honor of that I am posting an image of the Tan Oak trees and forest next to our house. We live in a mixed coniferous forest with Redwoods, Douglas Fir, Madrones and Tan Oaks. This area was logged in the 1960s and the Tan Oaks being a dominant tree grow much faster than Redwoods or Firs when there is light. So when it was logged it opened up the area to light and there are a lot of Tan Oak trees.The Firs and Redwoods are currently at an age where they slowly seem to be trying to take back over. God's light and love to all, chris This image was created with a handheld Canon 7D and a Canon 100-400 IS v.1 lens at 100mm. The camera settings used were AV mode, ISO 1600, F 11.0 at 1/125th of a sec.#TeamCanon
