Visually reach out and feel the texture of the moss, the ferns and leaves. Imagine the fresh smell of the forest, now close your eyes and listen. It's all there, let your senses try and take it all in.
With 12-14 feet of rain annually and trees up to 1000 years old, the Hoh Rainforest is a prime example of what an intact temperate rainforest is, its also the most green place I've ever seen, so many hues its incredible.
You almost feel the need to whisper there, like you are in an ancient library and you are afraid to get hushed by the librarian. The sounds are already softened by the lush vegetation so no need to whisper.
When I made this image it was absolutely calm, not even a hint of a breeze. Usually in the Hoh Valley there is an onshore wind from the coast and or a drizzle from the nearly ever present fog which definitely adds to the charm but makes it pretty tough to create images this large. Ive wandered through the Hoh dozens of times over the years and every time it's so different. A giant tree may have fallen, the stream could have changed its course or things just simply grow. It's the reason I continue to go back, I just don't know what has change since the last time I was there and I want to see it.

VAST Prints are fine art photographic paper prints that arrive ready to be mounted and/or framed. They are created using the sharpest photographic printer in commercial use: a very rare specialty printer that formerly printed military surveillance imagery. Learn more
Every VAST Print has two certificates of authenticity hand-signed by the artist and the printmaker: one affixed to the print and one standalone. Additionally, each print is assigned a unique serial number via a permanent hologram seal and recorded in our registry. Its provenance is tracked and verified using state-of-the-art digital blockchain encryption technology.
VAST Displays are ready-to-hang works of art that contain a VAST Print sealed between flame-polished acrylic glass and an aluminum backing. A hidden brace on the back causes the display to gracefully "float" off the wall for a sleek, modern frameless look that complements nearly any decor style. Learn more
