Path of the Giants
Trying to capture the essence of the giant redwoods using a camera is a hopeless task. They are not only too big -- they are too
. While one can endeavor to indicate their size through the use of wide-angle lenses and panoramas, one cannot as easily capture their magnificence, and what it feels like to walk among them.
They never lose their god-like composure, never toss their arms or bow or wave like the pines, but only slowly, solemnly nod and sway, standing erect, making no sign of strife, none of rest, neither in alliance nor at war with the winds, too calmly unconsciously noble and strong to strive with or bid defiance to anything.
