General Sherman Tree Area (Part 8) - Sequoia & King's Canyon NP (2014)

I recently took a trip to Sequoia and King's Canyon National Park (the two parks are connected). I had a great time photographing many scenery and enjoying the beauty of nature both inside the two national parks and out in Sequoia National Forest. Through this chain of blog posts, I will be showing photos of natural scenery, mountains, meadows, forests, wildlife, and the wonderful trees of the parks. I will also be giving some travel advice into the park as I know some of you viewers are probably looking at this to try to plan a trip to the parks. In these parks, is one of the world's largest species of trees, the Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum). I will also have a few photos of the world's most massive tree the General Sherman Tree in blog posts to come. I hope you enjoy this chain of blog posts!

Today I continue my photos from day two. These photos are shot in the General Sherman Tree Area so many photos of the Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum). The photo of the General Sherman Tree will be in the next blog post, not this one.

Another portrait shot of a Giant Sequoia (Sequoiadendron giganteum). The tree is so massive I couldn't fit the whole thing in my frame, and I was at 16 mm on a full frame DSLR.

That tree above fit in the frame a lot better after I backed up a bit.
