    Over 3000 years old and some of the largest living things on our planet, the Giant Sequoias in CA set the stage for a magical spring. They sit like stoic sentinels overlooking all that happens beneath them. It is amazing to ponder all these amazing beings have experienced and endured over the years.

    Story 1

    Lovely frame! EPIC in the sense that the perspective is so dramatic. Also, by positioning the tree trunk in the centre of the composition, we the viewer, follow the trunk all the way up to the top of the tree and into the canopy, whilst everything is so beautifully encompassed in a delightful subtle colour and tone. Very nice, great job!
