Bronze in 'Trees' - Prix de la Photographie, Paris (Px3) 2014

My photo of an old-growth Douglas-fir tree in the Avatar Grove has been awarded Bronze in the professional 'Trees' category of Prix de la Photographie, Paris (Px3) 2014, "Europe's biggest and most prestigious photography competition". The effect of the photo was achieved by zooming the lens out during a slow exposure in order to capture, what I feel, is the magic of being in these ancient forests.
