The Stand - by Ian Whitehead, Sequoia NP, California
The Stand, within Sequoia NP, California

There are few experiences on this earth quite like that of the stand of amazing giant Sequoias that have been here since the time that Jesus walked the earth. These are some of the earths most precious beings. The peaceful grace and power, the musty smell of ancient inches thick bark after a misty storm on a dew-filled morning.

Taken in Sequoia National Park which lies in the foothills of the southern Sierra Nevada range, not far east of the San Joaquin Valley, yet a whole other world apart.
