Giant Sequoia – Their Sculptural Beauty

Image of the trunk and roots of a giant sequoia tree.

Untitled, Calaveras Big Trees State Park, JUL 2011

Five years ago, I saw the giant sequoia for the first time. Like most people, I was in awe of these giant trees.  Their imposing size and their presence in the forest really impressed me.  My images Among the Elders and Sequoia Giganteum attempt to capture the scale of these trees.  However, I also found that the furrows and ridges of their bark create a sculptural beauty that is striking.  Over the ensuing years, I’ve taken images of a few trees whose patterns really struck me.  Here is a sample of what I found.

I hope you enjoy them as much as I do.
