Corvallis, Oregon, where I live, is surrounded on the north and the west by the McDonald Forest. When I am in town, I walk and photograph almost daily in the forest. Autumn is always one of the prettiest times. When there is lots of fog, like there was this year, the forest takes on a mystical aura. As I was walking along, what especially attracted me to this scene was the way that the trail was covered with autumn leaves. The curve in the trail juxtaposed with the vertical tree trunks created that combination of the energy of vertical lines and the serenity of curves.
