The waters of Honey Creek slip over Turner Falls in the Arbuckle Mountains, Oklahoma
National Geographic | August 1971
The 3200 year old tree so massive that it had never been captured in a single image until recently.
This giant sequoia stands 247 feet tall and measures 45,000 cubic feet in volume. The trunk alone measures 27 feet and the branches hold 2 billion needles (more than any tree on the planet).
This picture took a team of photographers from Nat Geo, 32 days and stitching together 126 different photos to make.
Nice job! =)
cloisonne hair comb, one side based on Beardsley’s “Siegfried,” the other an iris. It was dropped long ago; you can see the enamel chipped at some of the edges.
