Palo Alto resident David Henry captured a stunning photo of the inside of a redwood tree and the forest canopy at El Corte de Madera Open Space Preserve. The photo earned him grand prize in the 2012 Heart of the Redwoods amateur photo contest sponsored by the Peninsula Open Space Trust (POST).
The winning photo will be on display at University Art in Palo Alto.
Henry’s prize is an advanced technique workshop taught by Santa Cruz-based nature photographer Sebastian Kennerknecht. “The high caliber of the entries we received reinforces the impact of our local redwood forests on people’s lives. These are places that inspire and rejuvenate us, and to sustain that effect we need to do all we can to protect these forests not only for ourselves, but for the benefit of future generations,” said POST President Walter T. Moore.
POST is attempting to protect 20,000 acres of redwood forests in the Santa Cruz Mountains.
