Muir Woods California is an absolutely spiritual place despite being only 15 miles or so from San Francisco. This quiet valley forest provides little indication civilization is so nearby. While walking on one of the many paths, the sun broke through the dense canopy of trees, and painted this one redwood with a luxuriously soft light. I captured it. I often look at this image and can feel the tranquility and peaceful calm that permeates Muir Woods.
