A Thousand Years

Posted by
Scott F. Schilling (San Martin, United States) on 26 April 2009 in Landscape & Rural and Portfolio.

When you stand underneath these giants you feel quite small - This tree likely sprouted a thousand years ago and has the potential to live another thousand years. It is approaching 300' in height. The age of these trees is a bit staggering to me.

I hope you were leaning against that ancient trunk so you didn't fall backwards in the process of shooting upward.
Just look at the detail in those trunks, and of course the green canopy overhead. SUPER SHOT!

I have not been to the Redwoods in years now, but this image conjures up so many memories of the first time of seeing these amazing trees. Five stars from me, a stellar composition and representation!

Great angle Scott, and it's a beautiful image. How about climbing to the top to give us a wider view....?

Reminds me of a fallen redwood I saw up in Humboldt County, it had sprouted about the time of Christ. Hard to imagine.

Lovely image. Hard to capture these things, isn't it? :)
