Photographing The President

The President being photographed is not any president but a 3500 year old one. The President tree is the giant sequoia located in the Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park in the United States, California. It is not the tallest giant sequoia tree in the world (75 m), but it is the third largest tree in the world.  
The tree until now had never been photographed completely. A team of photographers from National Geographic and scientists from the Sequoia National Park to be the first to accomplish that feat. if you look carefully you can see the tiny scientists among the branches and leafs of the giant tree. I myself could find four of them, you are welcome to find more if you can.

A day in the park!


  

                              I think I have lately redeveloped my taste in photography yet again. Enjoying another day in the park after quite a long time in the concrete jungles was so rejuvenating. With lots of butterflies , tons of greenery and of course a brand new camera. Strolling trough the lawns with lots of time in my hands and no work at all , I was simply clicking away.

Trees along the road.

                              Loaded with birds and their chirps , The unending walkways seemed too short for the day. With rain threatening to come down any minute , the air was cold and there was a soothing breeze. Magical ! that’s what it was , with streaks of sunlight glowing through the small gaps in the puffy clouds. It all made the place look heavenly. 

                              As the sun bid adieu , making the guardians of green grow sad . His light shone trough the canopy as he embarked on his mighty descent. A beautiful day with many a beautiful memories , that’s what today was !
