Out of conversation from another thread, here's a 2 shot vertical pano of a Giant Sequoia to give people some idea of scale. You really can't imagine how big these trees are until you're standing in front of one. Even the picture doesn't do them justice...they're massive!!! :)

This kid looked to be about 11-12 years old?

I think it may be oversharpened or it could be the contrast.

That thing is huge.

I guess this photo is suffering from compression artefacts, if it really is a vertical pano, the original file must be huge!
Nevertheless: this tree is breathtakingly large! Ever since I've been a child and first saw photos of these trees, I have wanted to travel there and see them with my own eyes. It has never come about so far...

I just moved out to Cali and i havent seen Sequoia's yet, ive seen the Giant coastal redwoods round San Fran and they are just amazing. not as big at the base, but taller.
I was trying to take a picture of one and with a 28mm lens (on film) and i still could only get half the dang tree in the frame.
