The Path to Rivendell

Being a big JRR Tolkien fan every time I venture into a deep set of woods I always feel like a character out of Middle Earth heading toward the fabled Elven City of Rivendell. That rich, moisture laden air, the mist hanging low above the tops of the trees… that smell of earth and life… if you look closely enough, you might actually make out Elrond at the lower right, pointy ears and all.

This is the trail up to Little and Big Cascade Falls in Vermont. Turns out the falls weren’t too full, I’ll post some shots at a later date, but the woods and the trip through them made it worth it.

  1. A good name for this photo…a shame it isn’t the path.

  2. I really like this. It’s a very good composition and you’ve managed to show the depth and not have the scene appeared cluttered. (I’m still searching after the elusive “good” forest photo.)
