This image was a total accident. I was walking along the Maple Glade Rainforest Nature Trail in the Quinault Rainforest of Olympic National Park. I’d set the tripod and camera up to capture this scene, when one of the tripod legs began sinking down into the wet ground right when the 2-second timer went off and the shutter clicked. I didn’t even know I’d gotten this photo until I downloaded it that night. I decided I liked it for its surreal view. And it’s a great example of the kind of look you can get when you are zooming your lens in or out (or when your tripod leg starts to sink in the mud).

One response to “Dreaming In The Rainforest”
My accidental photos never turn out good, like yours do. It is interesting that it appears only the upper portion of the image is affected by the camera motion. The motion blur does add interest to the photo.
