Colors and White Balance in the Forest

To any readers following this blog, I have been busy recently with another trip back to the USA to witness the death of my grandmother. It was a sad experience. I sought solace in the woods around my family's compound in Northern Washington State. While there I discovered something on the settings of my Nikon D50 camera. Here is the first picture I took at this trail junction with automatic white balance:

Notice the greens are turned blue - maybe the camera thinks they are fluorescent lights? I'm not sure, but when switching to white balance for bright sunlight, the photo came out much better:

I leave you with a picture of a big Douglas fir tree with my hand on the trunk and the height accentuated with my extreme wide angle. I love trees and the forest.
