I tried for years to get the canopy effect of the giant California Redwoods. This past January I went to the Avenue of the Giants, wandered into this grove and finally found this picture I had been searching for. I had laid on my back in groves, photographing straight up and everything else I could think of without success, but this time I got the picture I was looking for. I think it had a lot to do with the clump of trees I shot, but I shot straight up from my knees and got it. Notice the strong Vermilion accents in the greens between the two trees on the right. The dark green becomes darker and greener, while the yellow green near the top becomes more orange by juxtaposition. In the center, the green becomes lighter and greener with the absence of any reds.
