It is difficult to convey just how freakin' huge the tree in the middle is. Chad and I both found this group of trees to be fascinating with the tree in the middle encircled by its 'guards'.
It was very challenging to photograph, the image you see is the result of both an HDR merge and a panoramic stitch done with a tilt shift lens. I used a total of 16 individual images to make this 28 mp composite. I'm looking forward to being able to make a very large banner print.
This is a single exposure made with a tilt shift lens to maximize the angle of view while minimizing perspective distortion.
