Amongst Giants

Sequoia National Park is one of my favourite places in the world.  The giant trees are the biggest and some of the oldest living things on Earth, and my attempts to convey their colossal size were scuppered by my limited photographic skills.

General Sherman

If you’ve never been to this beautiful National Park in the high Sierras of California, I couldn’t recommend it more highly, it is absolutely stunningly beautiful.

This is General Sherman, the biggest living thing on the planet.  Take it from me it is a giant of breathtaking proportions and truly awe inspiring.  The light in these mountains is wonderful, and the air is thick with the pungent smell of pine.  Walking amongst these great trees is something I’ll never forget.
