Sun and Fog in the Redwoods

I love the mood that a light fog creates in the forest. Sun rays coming through that fog is magical. I experienced this on one of my days in the redwoods. The day started with some pretty thick fog. A friend of mine showed me a composition with a twisted branch from a few days before. While walking the trail, I noticed this same branch and started exploring other ways to capture the scene. I took many versions of the photo below. If you want to see others, check out all the photos from this trip here.

When I was just about done, I noticed this backlit web catching the sun. I put on my 100-400 lens and shot this at 400mm in crop-sensor mode.
