    My friend was just married in Orick, CA (about an hour north of Eureka) in the Redwoods. I officiated the ceremony, so I don't have any pictures of the wedding, but there was lots of wildlife to photograph. If you've never been to the redwoods, you've got to go. The size of the trees is just...wow. Indescribable. It's tough to get perspective on how big and how beautiful that the scenery is.

    I'm glad you included people in the images for scale. It would be impossible to appreciate the size and beauty of these trees.

    Nice work.

    Pic #2 is cooler than anything I've shot there. Nice work, Paul!

    Must road-trip that way again soon.
     
  6. Thanks

    These are huge - I only noticed the people in the last picture and when I looked at them again notice the little squirrel size person in the first pic... WOW

    They are truly huge!

    Thanks Lee. The photos that I have without people in them makes the forest look just "normal"

    Thanks so much Patrick-I'm glad that you enjoyed them!

    Troy, I don't have your forestry experience, but I'd be inclined to agree that this is my favorite type of forest so far.

    Thanks Nancy! #2 is my favorite as well. I was really surprised that the underside of all of the clovers were so colorful. These were bright red and others were bright purple. How odd...

    I was just amazed by how big that these trees are! They get up to about 400 feet high and are the tallest living things ever.
    The redwoods are also where the Ewoks were filmed (Endor in The Return of the Jedi) and where the dinosaurs lived in Jurassic Park. It's an amazing place to visit. After you're done with your European tour, it's worth a look :)

    Wow! I would love to see them someday.
     
  10. I've never had much desire to travel. The California redwoods are the only thing on my bucket list. Thanks for sharing these.

    Thanks Greg--It really is an awe-inspiring sight.

    Troy-be careful up there. The redwoods should be fine in the fires (their flae retardancy is pretty impressive), but I'm a little worried about the cities that surround the trees.
