MUIR WOODS, CALIFORNIA:  This National Monument park is a great place to see giant redwood trees.  The park is named after John Muir, a Scot whose family moved to Wisconsin in 1848. He became one of America’s best known environmentalists and fought hard to protect many important natural heritage areas including Yosemite, Sequoia and even the Grand Canyon. The park is a short drive from San Francisco and probably the closest location to see giant redwoods. This photo was taken from a footbridge. To get the perspective I wanted, I mounted my camera on a monopod, set the 10 second timer and hung the unit as far below the bridge as I could reach.  Got a lot of stares from other visitors too!

Shot with a Nikon D3100, 10-24 DX  lens at 10mm, ISO 800, 1/30 sec., f8. Copyright photo by John Ecker   |    pantheon photography
