    Fantastic capture – both majestic yet eerie at the same time!

    • Thank you kindly, Joanne! I’m so glad you enjoyed it, my friend 🙂 These beautiful, ancient giants are Redwood trees…they never fail to inspire and humble me as I walk under their lofty green canopies. Hope you’re having a wonderful week 🙂
      Cheers,
      Tyler

    absolutely beautiful. I love your photos with this lens.

  3. Would love to see these ancients one day – all of our southern old forests are long gone – the woods are now just a few hundred years old at best – tho still beautiful. K

    Beautiful shot, and I like the postivity in perspective of looking up.

    And so much old growth forest has been logged here in Australia too. More tragic is SE Asia.

    • So sad to see the land being revenged by greed / each old growth tree / a grand existence ended abruptly / no respect for giants that supply the air we breathe / providing the life we lead / let us hope and pray / that someday soon / we’ll come to our senses.
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

        Some good news as I drove to work this morning. The World Heritage Council meeting in Doha, has stopped our awful government from reclaiming forest in Tasmania for the timber industry!

  6. The poem and the photograph: excellent. I went backpacking a few weeks ago, Tyler, in the Red Buttes Wilderness on the Northern California/Southern Oregon border. The lower elevations are packed with beautiful old growth trees including cedar, pine and Douglas Fir. My thoughts pararelled yours exactly: may our children and grandchildren continue to enjoy them for decades, even centuries to come. –Curt

    • Thank you kindly, Curt! I’m glad you enjoyed it, my friend 🙂 It sounds like a lovely place to explore…I haven’t been to the Red Butte Wilderness, but I have seen the magnificent Redwoods of Jedediah Smith State Park in Northern California. What a humbling (and inspiring) experience to look up at these ancient giants! You seem like a kindred spirit who is passionate about the natural world. It’s a pleasure to follow your blog 🙂 Hope you had a fantastic Summer Solstice and all the best in the week ahead!
      Cheers,
      Tyler 🙂

      • Our home backs up to national forest in the back and the Applegate River in the front, Tyler. Lots of nature to be passionate about here. Nothing like having wilderness outside your door. 🙂

        Peggy and I have made it over to the Redwoods several times in the past couple of years. And I am awed every time we go. How could we not be? –Curt
