Re: Sequoia National Park panos (not Mt Whitney!)
- I've been up there years ago; maybe on my next week off I will drive up there and use my pole setup to shoot some photos of the General Sherman tree along with other places around there. Now if I just had a longer pole!
It is so beautiful up there, I should really try and get up there more often as it's only about a 5 hour drive from here.
- Panos of sequoias are great! Tree is an amazing creature... yes I am proud that I live in country which 63% of area is covered with the forest. In last 15 years the coverage with the forest has increased from 54% to present 63% ... and we are in the Central Europe...

A tree that size is truly impossible to understand... be it through
pictures, panos or video. One will have to see and feel it in real life.
... on another thought... if there were trees of this size in Denmark, there
would probably be a law prohibiting them to exist.
There is a law that prohibits natural woods to exist there. Everything has
to be clean and nice. If trees fall, they have to be removed, paths can not
be overgrown etc. If you own land on which you have trees, you can receive
a fine if you don't keep it manicured to the standards of the law.
It is great to see nature's incredible things... and not only having to see
clean and clear paths of pavement going between the trees.
