Painting is just another way of keeping a diary ~Pablo Picasso

My artistic interpretation of the Redwoods.  I like it for a couple of reasons.  First, it captured the color of the Redwoods closest to how they actually look.  I really struggled with color balance in these woods, and this mix of colors came out just right!  And second, it retained a feeling of bark grain, which I think is really cool.  I was panning over a really long shutter speed (1/8 sec.) so I wasn't expecting to see so much grainy detail.
