  1. What a beautiful child. The contrast in size really makes it clear how tall the trees really are. I like the angle of the photo and having the child standing there!

  2. BTW…what interests me here is that you seem to be looking down on the child, but the shot reaches upwards toward the tree. I don’t think I’ve ever felt that kind of tension in a photograph. What angle were you shooting from here?

    • if i’m not mistaken, i was standing at the time and captured the photo using a sigma 10-20mm superwide lens. and at 10mm, the angle pretty much covered everything from her feet to the towering redwoods. 🙂

    • thanks kathryn. i’ve always been fascinated by the redwoods ever since i first watched hitchcock’s vertigo ages ago and the rotorua redwoods are the nearest to malaysia to visit since california and the pacific northwest are too far away. 🙂
