SEQUOIA NATIONAL PARK / CALIFORNIA

In the beginning of June this year I drove South to the Sierra Nevada mountains. It was a trip without many expectation that turned out… well, it made me reconsider some of my beliefs. 

It showed me how small we, the humans are comparing to the nature. Staying there in front of a more then 2000 years old Sequoia tree, feeling so little, that I couldn’t even describe. The only thing I was thinking was that empires come, rise and burn to ashes, but here it is this giant tree… staying here for thousands of years, despite humans, climate, fires... it is unbelievable.

Sequoia National Park is adjacent to Kings Canyon National Park in California's southern Sierra Nevada mountains. It's well known for its huge sequoia trees.

The weather there at that time was very foggy and so wet that my poor little Pentax just didn’t wanted to work. Nevertheless I managed to snap some images for you.
