Love both of these, such great filtered light and uncharacteristic lushness.

Great work Jason! Stealing the light from my back yard
Both are nice, but the 1st is my favorite.
Something about the color & light through the trees.
We should meet up

Great set of images! That first one I am really drawn to, don't think I would have seen that scene.

Reminds me of my childhood in Central CA. Both of them are exquisite.

These are really eye-catching! The second one reminds me of a gathering of Ents!

thanks for the fantastic response everyone and taking the time to leave comments.

Fred, Rajan - I originally had more sky but I felt the sky was atrocious in that yellow hazy color so i cropped it a bit more. I also posted a 3rd crop eliminating as per Rajan's suggestion. I had toyed with this crop before but I felt the tension was a bit too much. What do you guys think?

Kee Woo Rhee - both shots are multiple shots in exposure and focus blending (#1 only). #1 I blended 3 shots for focus (probably could get away with 2, but since there wasn't any wind it was an easy blend to get the top branches, mid and bg sharp). I blended 2 more for dynamic range as the sunstar blew out the surrounding bits so i had to recover bits of background here and there. #2 was shot was 2 shot exposure blend. I took a darker exposure to get the nice highlights on the hills and a brighter one for the branches. I didn't have to focus blend that one since the scene was farther away from me and nothing was needed in the immediate fg.

dswiger (Dan) - yeah man. I just picked up the Tamron 150-600 G2. I'm dying to try this out on farther hills. I usually just play it by ear when I'm going to shoot so im not sure how flexible your time is these days.

Love the first image and how you kept the sky from overpowering the image! Dave

Read your post on your site Jason.Great shots and use of light. Funny how a tree can either look like a shot in a horror movie or look like this, and all that from light alone.
BTW are you still using your 30D for shots like these or did you go to a full frame ?
I know its not the gear, but I always like to see what people are using.

I've moved on. I think from my websites most of the shots are either from my canon 5D mk II or Sony A7R. Thanks for checking my work!

Hey Jason

These two shots are amazing! Love them, make me miss the Bay Area

Your comment about the oak tree branches got me thinking... not sure which photo you were talking about. First photo is definitely an oak but I think the second photo is about half oaks and half buckeyes, though I can't be 100% sure. Check out this photo, they are all buckeyes and some of yours grow very similarly: http://www.matttilghman.com/california-buckeyes-after-dusting.html
