Wish you had the top of the Sequoia, !
So do I, but those tree are all but impossible photograph & capture their enormousness. I opted to get close & make the trunk dominate the foreground.
The third one appeals to me but I would have liked just a little bit more of the coloured background: as it stands, it feels a little unbalanced and cramped.
I know what you mean...that was my dilemma: the foreground had this intense pattern to it that I wanted, but I also wanted to last ridgeline of Manley's Beacon fill the frame. About 10 mins later I made these... except the last photo, which later that night was just for fun. Thanks for looking.
