Still traveling US

I have still many miles/ kilometers driving and pictures from our drive on the California coast. I have given you an opportunity to have a break from these beautiful views. Well, here we go again, I need complete my dairy of the trip.

If I am not totally wrong these are from Point Lobos State Natural Reserve

Sequoia – Sunset

What can I say; the sunset was beautiful. The sky changed colors constantly and the point of focus changed the tone of the shot dramatically. I was even able to capture stars ( white spots on the photo) with out a tripod.

I was able to capture stars… without a tripod

Sequoia, Giant Forest

The beautiful redwood trees are HUGE, unless you see them it is hard to imagine the size them. To think that there are people who think they should be cut down. I am blown away of the majesty of the trees. General Sherman is a giant sequoia tree located in the Giant Forest of Sequoia National Park  it is the largest known living single-stem tree on Earth.

Height 83.8 m (275 ft), Diameter 7.7 m (25 ft), Volume of trunk 1,487 m3 (52,500 cu ft), Date seeded 700BC – 300BC

The Giant Forest, famed for its giant sequoia trees, is within the Sequoia National Park. This montane forest, situated at over 6,000 feet (1,800 m) above mean sea level. The giant sequoia tree is the most massive species of tree on earth and they are impressive for sure.

We caught up with a group of people who had a guide with them and so we discovered this three that you could crawl into and you could also see though the tree to the side and the top of the trunk a hollow tree. One more thing to be amazed about.

Memories from 1990’s

Busy

I have been busy. I took up sculpture and painting again. Also planning our next trip. So I have not been active taking photos. Fall is here again so one for the road. Monday we are flying to LA and Las Vegas. I’m sure I will post some pictures taken with my mobile phone.

Before the thunderstorm

I was sitting in my backyard watching the clouds gather into the intense blue gray color. I took these just before the thunderstorm was above us.The temperature dropped three degrees in just s short while…got to love Finnish summer and the amazing 17 C degrees of warmth.

Autumn Vibes ~22

Driving from Porkkala in the afternoon we passed this field with the woods in the background  and a river with deep blue water. This sight appealed to me, mostly due to the light, the low light if autumn is beautiful. The lone walker on the road also caught my attention.

Autumn Vibes ~21

Driving to Porkkala in the morning we passed this field with a touch of mist still visible. This sight appealed to me, mostly due to the light. Looking to two directions from the same spot the light was totally different.The low light if autumn is beautiful.
