    The burl growth on this redwood reminds me of the cow pasture next door to where I grew up as a child. Buffalo_Chip_2000mdv.jpg

    It was even colder by a larger redwood when she wasn't wearing anything.

    Exploring. A certain tree is not shown, but behind those trunks stands one of the world's largest Port Orford cedar. It was an unexpected find. This photo is taken across a tiny valley from one side to the other.

    Expedition_10_1800mdv.jpg I didn't realize what the climber to the left was doing when I took the photo, but have a fair guess. The day before, bats flew out of a tree cave at this spot. The man on the right is NBC's videographer, who got a bit stressed. I think the climber paused to tell the story to take the man's mind off other stuff for a moment, flapping arms like bat wings to explain.

    That's related to the photo I shared several posts ago, with the climbers. Archangel coordinated the event to correlate with their work and potential donations.

    To stand amongst the last of the giants has to be breath taking. Thanks for the pics,

    Beautiful massive tree.
    You want my opinion? The girl in the blue toga doesn't fit. She doesn't look natural.
    Maybe if she were wearing an American Indian, southwestern, or pixie outfit, she would blend with her surroundings better.
    Your photography is amazing, just the same. :)

    I've posted photos of her in 2o other outfits over the past few years too. When I share on Facebook, the photos like this get double the shares, so I mix up and use all the photos over the span of a few years.

    One photo, with a red dress, got about 100,000 views and over 1000 shares on Facebook once. Then all those folks could enter the photos folder and scroll through images with less colorful outfits, or even redwoods with no people.

    Even the color aspect works. After the red dress photo that got so many shares, I started using red shirts for myself. A year later, the 101 Things to Do magazine used it on their cover of the Del Norte / Southern Oregon edition.

    But some of the photos with women work very good. Her sister is a good subject too. Here's a recent portrait taken in the redwoods.
