Some more examples of Treescapes.

Treescapes– pictures of woodland–have been a really big part of my landscape work for many years. I am fascinated by the effects of light on foliage, which is different every time I go out with a camera. Indeed I long ago learned that I had to have my camera with me always, because if I saw something in the woods I liked, and didn’t have one, then I would never find it exactly the same again.

Metering the light in woodland is tricky because any sky showing through the leaves will cause the meter to over-read. I use a Pentax Spotmeter (just as Ansel said I should) and use a shortened vrsion of his Zone System.
