Photography – The Third Largest tree in the world…

The oh-so talented folks over at National Geographic sent expert photographer Michael Nicols and a crew to Sequoia National park in Northern California to photograph the third largest tree in the world, named “The President”. It took 32 days on the ropes at various heights to take varying photos of “The President”, and the results are breathtaking.  What is it about trees? “I think that I shall never see, a poem lovely as a tree…” (Joyce Kilmer)

I have always had a special place in my heart for National Geographic. My grandmother sent us yearly subscriptions and I remember fondly going to their film series when I was a teenager. In fact, it was their film series that gave me wanderlust and was an introduction to the beauties of the surrounding world.  Read more about this amazing photographical journey on the National Geographic website.
