Redwoods by the River

Redwood trees fascinate me. Both redwoods and giant sequoias (which are closely related) dwarf any other lifeform on the planet, and both species can live to incredible ages. It is not uncommon to find redwoods or sequoias that are over 1,000 years old. Unfortunately, for all of their incredible size and longevity, they are both somewhat picky in where they can grow, hence we won't be seeing ancient redwood forests here in Maryland any time soon.

  1. Almost every photo I take has at least one tree in it! I've been a tree-hugger since I was a kid climbing orange trees. I like your painting very much - it's rather sophisticated!
