Bachelor and the Three Graces, Mariposa Grove of Sequoias, Yosemite

Behind the scenes of this photo

Taken in the Mariposa Grove of Giant Sequoias, Yosemite National Park on May 4th, 2009

In early May I was visiting Yosemite with an idea for a panoramic shot of the giant sequoias. I didn’t want to use my wide angle and go for a full roots-to-canopy capture of one of the massive trees since perspective distortion always renders the top of the tree as a tiny bunch of broccoli. Rather, I thought I’d show the trees’ immense size by having their impressive trunks slice vertically through the frame of my horizontal panorama.
