One of the most magical forests I’ve ever been too, this forest glade on Ramsay Island in Gwaii Haanas was straight out of a story book. I spent a too-short, but very happy, hour here climbing over moss-covered logs and dodging bear scat, half-expecting to hear the trees speak to me. A slow shutter speed and some intentional camera movement gave it something a little more impressionistic, being, as I was, in a place that first called to me through Emily Carr.

This is a high-resolution desktop wallpaper. Clicking it will take you to the full version. Enjoy.


  1. Bit dizzy but you get used to it just focus at one point.
    And it will be a totally new image.
    Have a nice day!

  2. Hmmm – is that a new you at the top right? Nice!!!!! And as for the forest – definitely impressionistic.

  3. Since the ebook slow came out, I’ve struggled with creating impressionistic photographs.

    This style is indeed more advanced than it looks. It’s just not simple as most people would think.

    I’ve loved your seascapes and they were amazing.

  4. David, I can totally relate to your “too-short” comment about the forests on Haida Gwaii. I was there for a short visit last summer and was directed to an old-growth forest by the Tlell River. I thought I would go in for an hour and make some images. Three hours later I was still there! What an amazing and mystical place.

    Thanks for your amazing images . . .

  5. It really has an artsy look, like an impressionistic painting. I like it .
    Tack sharp is not always the message.
    Btw rather enjoy your travel blog David!

  6. I applaud the effort David, but I’m struggling with this one. Looks like a fantastic spot but I don’t know if it works in the photographic medium. I’m curious to know what others think.

      No problem. Not really looking for concensus. If you like it, you like it, if not, well, there’s no shortage of photographs out there 🙂

    2. I agree with you, Tim. My first instinct was to adjust my eyes so the picture would come into focus. But, the more I look at it, the more I’m maybe starting to see what David sees. It might help if you forget it’s a photograph.
