Wonderful photos. I especially like the perspective in the first photo. The tree looks spectacular. There is a woods in my town with Sequoia trees. I too posted some photos of these giant and beautiful trees last year, I think.

I love trees. They're my friends.

Everybody read a lot and heard a lot about these trees especially the weeping syquoia! But it looks so personal in these photos as if we are the ones who went there. BTW, do you know what first comes to mind in seeing it?...shaggy very dry hair of a streetwalker! sorry about that.

Denise said...

Your photos are fantastic. I love the patterns of bark on trees.

Ann said...

Such grand looking trees. I've always loved the weeping variety

They are the giants in the forest.

I wonder if they would grow here in the SE? I must look them up. Love the angles of your shots!

I didn't realize sequoias wept! My favorite of those that cry are weeping willows, which seem a more dainty variety. This one is a huge fellow!

Icy, yeah those tree trunks are massive

MedaM, I'll have to check your blog. I'd love to see them. The tree was so tall I almost fell over taking the shot :)

Kass, same here - my next life, I decided I want to be a tree :)

Andrea, LMAO!!!

Denise, I do too, they are fascinating.

Ann, thanks me too :)

rainfield, they certainly are.

Jean, you know what, I don't know. I'll have to check that out.

Michelle, It is gorgeous in person :)

Carmen, Yeah, the weeping willows are more graceful than this guy :)
