  1. May I ask where the picture was taken? I may have overlooked it but am curious. Thanks for your time.

  2. What a beautiful hiding place! I’d love to spend a night sleeping in there. It reminds me of a hiding place in children’s stories!
    You look so small in comparison.
    Great photo and the caption is life giving.
    Jennifer
    P.S I’m nominating you for a Sunshine award because I think you should have every award out there!
    I’ll be posting soon.

    • Thank you, Jennifer! I humbly accept your nomination and appreciate your kind words and heartfelt support. This photograph was taken among the Redwood giants of Northern California – a mystical place where everything is either dwarfed or enlarged. I think people typically do not like feeling small, but it makes me that much more aware and familiar with the ecosystem as one of Nature’s denizens. May we squirrel away the childlike wonder of our youth like a pinecone in a hollowed out cache, our souls preserving timeless gems, lives saved and shared but never spent. Hope you are having a wonderful day 🙂
      Cheers,

  3. this is awesome. my hubby was just up at the KIngs Canyon sequoia forest last weekend sadly i could not go. I love the redwoods and sequoia that Calif has to offer they are amazing! where was this taken? i thought the greats like this only grew on my side of the pond on the West coast?

    • Thank you! You are correct. This photo was taken in the Redwoods of Northern California. It’s such a mystical, magical place to visit and explore. The scent (and sap) of fragrant tree boughs sticks to your clothes and lingers in your subconscious long after you return home, as giant images are blazed into your small brain’s synaptic switchbacks, expanding your capacity for awareness and inspiration.
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

    Outside my window is a tree that looks exactly like that, only a squirrel would fill its cleft as well as you fill this one. Nature does repeat her forms in different scales.

    • I agree with you, Clyde. Nature is so diverse yet so common. However, reference frames change as fast as the sky rearranging fluffy furniture. What perspective of the perspective of another! Thanks for taking time to notice the little things and for leaving a thought-provoking comment. Hope you are having a great day!
      Cheers,
      Tyler
