[Note Guidelines] Photographer's Note
This is a cluster of redwoods which were suddenly touched by sunlight, allowing us to see their reddish bark in the bright light.

Redwoods are interesting because as well as potentially growing from seeds, they are able to grow additional trees from their own roots and the bulges on the trunks called burls. This cluster may have started from a single tree, now surrounded by its progeny which emerged from its roots.

To the left of the cluster you will see a set of thin leaves - this is, in fact, a young redwood starting out on its 1,000 year or longer life.

Note the people in the bottom right hand corner - that will give you a sense for how large these enormous trees actually become.

The trees are so large I could not photograph them with a 28 mm lens on my DLSR - I had to use my Motorola Moto XT 1060 cell phone to capture this and several other images.
