Photo Of The Day – The Four Guardsmen

The Four Guardsmen

Title: The Four Guardsmen

Location: Sequoia National Park, California, USA, North America

Description: The Four Guardsmen are giant sequoia trees along the main road leading into the Sequoia National Park in California’s Sierra Nevada Mountains. The problem with photographing these trees is showing their massive size as they often aren’t towering over the pines and firs around them. For some sense of scale, you can notice Sabrina at the base of the tree along the road.
