Love the frosty leaves, Emma & nice shots all around!

We spent the day amongst the Giant Sequoias; one of the bonuses of living here in Central California. As we drove up the mountain we were really appalled at the layers of dirt & smog over the valley; just YUCK! It was a lovely 50 degrees, not much snow but lots of tourists; we couldn't even find a parking place to hike to the General Sherman Tree so we moved on to Grant's Grove where there is a great walking path through many giant trees. I wish I could capture the feeling they give you in person but to get a good idea of their size, realize that many of the surrounding trees are 70 foot high Lodge pole Pines & quite large in their own right.

One my favorite "bunches" of trees:

Mo, Great job on the General Grant and the "bunches"!
It is really tough to try to capture the size and beauty of these giants!

Sorry to hear that you are also inundated with tourist and "snowbirds"
I can understand! Population here will nearly double soon :(

Here a little size perspective for ya :)

Look at the trunk of the tree on your left; it is a full grown 'normal' tree :) The roots of the Giant Sequoia are just below the surface of the soil & the trees are fenced off but a few idiots always walk up to them for pictures. I always give them a good scolding ;)

Those are some trees, Maureen. They're somehow pre-historic! But they put us, puny humans, nicely in our place... :)

Emma, loved your wintery shots, especially the frost ones.

Maureen, do you print all your images yourself?

Lovely frosty shots Emma, and how exciting you got a horse! that'll keep you busy - and poor LOL!

Maureen - beautiful sequoia shots - I've been there, many moons ago - we drove through one with a big hole in it? I remember it was a very small track to get there in our rental car and no one else was around at all, a bit bizarre really.

Still dreadful weather here, did three hours of walking with dog training clients this morning so I definitely don't need to go out in this again today!

Levina, I print my own pictures, mainly for scrapbooking. But I also update or add to my hall of photos where my kids/grandkids pictures are. In my family room I have a smattering of all our travels printed on canvas. The wall is big so it holds quite a collection.

Penel, I don't think anyone can drive thru that tree anymore. I don't even remember where it is. Sometimes we go up a few times a year but we realized we didn't get up to the trees at all in 2013 so starting the year out with a trip was great. It is only 39 miles away but takes an hour due to the uphill drive.

Hi Angela :D

I must look out my photos of the trees from when we were there Maureen. I wasn't really into photography then although I did have a Canon AE1 Program, my first SLR.

Some of these photos are great although I prefer the wilder ones - don't like the set ups.

Hi Angela. Welcome to the thread! :)

Penel, Edwin Kats is a great Dutch nature photographer. I bookmarked him some time ago. He has a blog and I'm always looking out for a new entry, but he doesn't update it very regularly. He was in Iceland and Poland this year and has some amazing photographs on his site from the trips.

There is a tree you can drive through in Northern California, kind of along the coast. I don't remember exactly where we were at that point, I'd have to look it up, but small cars could drive through it.

Hi all and Happy New Year. Not been around for a while - got a new horse and Christmas happened, mother's 80th birthday and a few days in the New Forest to recover from all of the above! Plus the absolutely foul weather we are having here - if they ever say in the next decade we have a drought I know they will be lying. It only stops raining for the pleasure of starting again!

Penel, those pictures you linked to are pretty neat.


I was out looking for birds of prey when I spotted these.

Sorry but I can't get anything in focus when it's that far away.

Something a little closer.
