    Photography keeps integrating with my work lately. Here's my latest, and probably favorite redwood forest so far. Even found a Crescent City woman to pose for scale, and cast a bit of light on the shade side. A coast redwood, and 7th largest known tree in the world. Only 6 individual trees have more wood volume, 6 individual Sequoiadendron in the Sierra Nevada area: diameters approximately the same, just less taper higher up the bole. This image surpassed 80,000 views and 800 shares on Facebook in practically a single day. Looking forward to selling prints of this one. Just picked up a 16" x 20" for my own home office.

    The model with an extra Canon camera for something different. This in another grove of northern California near Hiouchi.

    Here's one from a few weeks ago when we first tried a bright dress in the redwoods, but at Prairie Creek redwoods 1/2 hour south. This is a "fairy ring" or cathedral tree. The inner trunk hidden was enormous, although seen better days as the suckers / sprouts have become trees in themselves. All on one root system.

    Likewise ....

    3 photos using the same old furnace up here in Oregon. Has the arches, gates and locks on all 4 sides.

    Sort of shaped trunk-like

    Always enjoy your pics.
    Would the lady be named Galadriel?
    Wish I could grow that in my backyard!
    Guess I'll settle for my Amur maples.
