Nikkor P C 105mm f/2.5, Nikon...


Northern Hardwood Forest -- This is the most common forest type in Vermont, and varies greatly in species composition from place to place. Forests like this cover countless square miles on the glacial till mantled slopes of the Green Mountains. This stand at 530 m in the Green Mountain National Forest is dominated by sugar maple, but American beech and yellow birch (present in small numbers here) dominate at other sites. White ash and eastern hemlock are also present nearby.

Probably few trees here are more than 120 years old. Like most stands of this type, repeated logging has occurred here during the last two centuries. Had no logging occurred at this site, tree diameters might be 3-5 times greater, and species composition would differ in unknown ways.

Some technical information is in a comment.

Shutter speed was altered between 1/20 (top 6 rows) and 1/15 (bottom 5 rows) seconds. Two second shutter delay was initiated by wireless remote. Field of view set to 9.8 degrees. No adjustments were made in Lightroom before outputting jpegs for stitching.
