Description Famous conservationist John Muir was hiking in the Sierra Nevada a bit south of what is now Yosemite National Park and a few miles east of the future California Highway 41, seeking redwood trees. He spotted this grove from nearby Fresno Dome, and when he hiked to the trees, he found John Nelder, a retired miner, living in a rough cabin. The grove was first called Fresno Grove, but the name was later changed to honor the old pioneer. 'Bull Buck' is considered to be one of the tallest Redwood Trees in the world. It is estimated to be over 2700 tears old. Those trunks to the right represent Evergreens that rise as high as 100 feet themselves. The model (yours truly) is not leaning on the tree, but actually standing close to 30 feet from it.This original photo was digitally aged to keep with the John Muir era theme. I would have loved to be the official photographer for him in those days. The recorded history is incredibly fascinating.'God's love is manifest in the landscape as in a face.' ~ John MuirImagekind WATERMARK DOES NOT APPEAR ON PURCHASED PRODUCT.

A Little Bit About Me and What I Do
I strive to 'capture, create, and communicate' vision... to share something of lasting value to you! The refinement of this craft, whether by hand, photograph, or digital manifest, is an on going process. I use digital enhancement opportunity at random and on any image to make it more enjoyable to view. I've often been referred to as 'versatile' because of my tendency towards a variety of styles and subjects. It really is about inspiration of the moment... and hopefully inspiration that can last as long as eternity!
We have not arrived yet... but are in the constant process of getting there..
