“The redwoods, once seen, leave a mark or create a vision that stays with you always. No one has ever successfully painted or photographed a redwood tree. The feeling they produce is not transferable. From them comes silence and awe. It’s not only their unbelievable stature, nor the color which seems to shift and vary under your eyes, no they are not like any trees we know, they are ambassadors from another time.”

– John Steinbeck, Travels with Charley: In Search of America

As Steinbeck observed, the impression the redwoods make is really impossible to capture on film – but that doesn’t stop us from expressing our love and admiration of the redwoods with photography. We never tire of taking and seeing photos of the many-splendored redwood forest.
