Today’s Photo Of The Day is “The Green Room” by Harry Lichtman. Location: Olympic National Park, Washington.
“During my first visit to Olympic National Park this past year, I knew I wanted to visit the many iconic beaches and see the unique temperate rainforests,” describes Lichtman. “While the beach images are widely recognizable and found throughout social media, rainforest imagery is much tougher to come by and even more difficult to plan for. Finding cohesive compositions under the best lighting conditions was a real challenge. After much hiking in the Queets Rainforest, I found this composition that seemed to control the chaos. I walked around many trees and vines to see how the scene looked at various angles. I had never heard of the Queets Rainforest before heading out to Washington, as the Hoh rainforest seems to get all of the publicity and fanfare. The Hoh was much drier and lacked the lushness that I was looking for, so I headed to the nearby Queets to see what I would find. I was happily surprised.”
