Giant trees of Cathedral Grove
|[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note|
|These giant redwood cedars (Thuja plicata) appeared in great numbers about 5,000 years ago, and can live for up to 1,000 years before dying. These large trees don't die in the way animals do; their roots, core, and upper limbs continue to live while the trunk becomes infested with fungi and insects until the body is structurally weakened enough to topple in a windstorm or fire.|
that's me standing at the centre near the bottom edge to show relative size.

Belle composition également, et jolies couleurs. Je suis étonnée que personne d'autre n'ait "récompensé" cette photo.
Bravo et merci de la partager
