I was struck by the contrast between the lush evergreens and the barren ground in this camping area. It appeared to have been worn bare of any small plants.
I hafta say that does not look natural . . check your boots for radioactivity !

It's amazing what a bit of human traffic can do
30 Jan 2013 10:29am
Bouhhh... quel désastre.... Les humains et la nature !.)

love the sharp and clear presentation and the muted light! this barren forest floor is not uncommon in dense and dark stands of coniferous trees, but here man's activities are probably to blame for this !

The lack of anything growing was the first thing I noticed, too.

You did find a stark contrast here. I wonder whether it is a combination of the shade and the heavy mulch of the fallen needles. Since there appears to be a road/path through the mid-ground, the fore- and backgrounds seem less trodden yet still bare of vegatation.

Is it not just the fine dust of pine needles and dirt combined and yes walked down. Obviously the trees are getting all they need. Interesting shot Don.

Beautiful forest scene !!! Great shot ...

Good framing ,very nice photo!
30 Jan 2013 4:47pm
It makes me wonder what the campers have been doing. Hmmm.

Superbe graphisme de troncs et captage quel rendu sur l'écorce.
30 Jan 2013 4:57pm
interesting - lush but not.
Very interesting, as if the plants communicate to each other in essence "don't bother growing where the campers are" !

I agree with Rick its natures conspiracy :-)
30 Jan 2013 5:48pm
Definitely looks like a high traffic area Don! ;-)

Amazing scene with no ground foliage; the textures and colors are beautiful ~ great frame!
30 Jan 2013 8:05pm
A very unusual place - makes me wonder if there was a fire at one time. Great find and capture.
30 Jan 2013 9:33pm
Maybe the reason the ground is barren are fro those who would want to come and camp out here.
I like the photo !

Yes, it's been scoured clean down below. A pretty shot of this forest scene.
Interesting. The trees are very pretty but a little spooky!

Yes, the contrast is excellent. The general view I like very well. Thanks for the mail. I write this weekend.

Beautiful image of this forest. A fine shot. :)

That does seem odd. I wonder how large of an area this occurs in. You'd think there would be a few weeds or something.
3 Feb 2013 7:23pm
it sure is odd, nicely seen though.
