"Far away in the sunshine are my highest aspirations. I may not reach them, but I can look up and see their beauty, believe in them, and try to follow where they lead." -Louisa May Alcott
"Blessed is the man who walks not in the counsel of the wicked, nor stands in the way of sinners, nor sits in the seat of scoffers; but his delight is in the law of the LORD, and on his law he meditates day and night. He is like a tree planted by streams of water that yields its fruit in its season, and its leaf does not wither. In all that he does, he prospers." Psalm 1:1-3
Photographer Nick Nichols and the National Geographic built a robotic camera to capture images of this 1600-year-old California Redwood tree (with a crown over 100 feet wide). They stitched 84 photographs together, working on the project more than two years, in order to present this final photograph evidencing the majesty of our nation’s most beautiful trees: the California Redwoods.
