Lichen Draping From a Branch

Lichen drapes itself on the branches of trees in the undergrowth of the Redwood forests in California. Sunlight dapples plant leaves, filtered by trees that tower overhead. I have been lucky to be able to return repeatedly to photograph the Redwood forests and it’s these moments of stillness and peace that are really profoundly beautiful and that I seek out whenever I get the chance to return again.
