Entire Giant Sequoia Trees

     
  Entire Giant Sequoia Trees  
     
Finding pleasing compositions of entire Giant Sequoia trees is challenging. Grabbing an ultra-wide angle lens and moving in is relatively easy, but the resulting perspective distortion produces a giant base of the trunk with tiny branches at the top. Here I was able to use a fallen sequoia for my base and, with enough clearing to back up, could fit the entire trees into a 24mm frame.
