It can be dark here in the redwood forest. The trees are so tall that we don’t get direct sunlight on the house except mid-day in summer. The rest of the time the sun is so low in the sky that we only get the indirect, scattered, tree-filtered light.

Because of how dark it can feel here, previous owners of our log cabin put in a bunch of skylights. This is the skylight above my side of the bed with a view of several tall redwoods.
