A Sequoia Photo Essay.

If you believe the adage "a picture is worth a thousand words", then I have the photos to prove it.  Yes, I know that by publishing a blog I'm in the word business and I really am in love with language.  But these trees - these giant sequoias - they leave me speechless.

If you would like to read or re-read my post "Sequoias of Yosemite" you can find it in March 2011.  In that post I try to describe my fascination with these oldest, largest and most beautiful living things.
Here are a few pictures to complement the "Sequoias of Yosemite" post:

As always, click on a photo to enlarge.

  1. I've never seen personal photos of the sequoias--they're amazing! Wow!

  2. Stunning! When they "pose" next to normal-sized trees, you get tremendous perspective on these giants. Wow!
