Hello Janice, This is very lively landscape shot. The view is perfect and well presented. The composition is good. Ganesh
This would have been a tricky one to take.,but you did well.
I hadn't heard of Smiths Bush before.
Those Kahikatea look pretty young to me.
If you get a chance,drive down to Pirongia
(you know,where I used to live).
If you go for a walk in the forest there you will see some massive Kahikatea and Rimu.
NZs tallest native tree is on Mt Pirongia.
It is a Kahikatea over 66m high.
Well worth a trip.

a very nice picture with beautifiul dull light, not
easy to take. Well compsed with good deep and nice POV.
Loveley colour and fine detals.
Well done, old friend.
Over +30C today too.
Which Bush is Mr Smiths? I say that with obvious tongue in cheek humour..It is a fine landscape Janice..and landscapes are where I started 45 years ago as a child...VERY well seen and it looks so New Zealand, but perhaps that meaning might escape one who has spent most of their life there..and from a man who has only seen images...Very well composed.

Hello Janice. I enjoyed reading your note as much as looking at this composition. Excellent shot of the trail with the undergrowth looking like our rain forest here. I like the tall trees in perspective and the unique diagonal stem across the frame. Thanks for sharing and best regards. Jusni

I see we're in the "thicket" of it again Janice :)
Nice sense of depth and well exposed bush scene..
The color & detail looks great too mf.
Interesting notes..and yes, I read them all the way through ;}
PS - I'll write soon - promise!
A ity that native trees are nowadays only to be found in reserves, Janice...And trees are my weakness, especially when captured so well, that the shot seems to have given the forest a soul, if you know what I mean...A really beautiful shot, Janice.

I like the wild and untouched aspect of that forest very much. Your picture also is very well accompanied by interesting and instructive notes.

This is a fine capture of the forest, or bush in your area, Janice.
You are lucky to live near such a fine habitat.
This has a great composition of the Kahikatea gnarled old tree trunk in its natural habitat. Excellent exposure too.
TFS this fine image and the informative note,
Best wishes, Ivan
