Many thanks for the kind words on my latest picture, I really enjoyed the background information of that sign from Gruyere! Thank you also for directing me towards your sons photos...maybe only a few to this point, but I'm happy to follow along.
A fun series here with these signs, and an original idea that has brought a twist to the normal kinds of pictures we're all accustomed to seeing on a regular basis. On the technical side, this one has terrific warm caramel and dark chocolate colors which makes it stand out from the background. Not only is it a visual treat, it's also a good way to learn! :) Have a great weekend ahead. Wishing you the best from Phoenix!

Its always great to see the stats, as much as a picture of the tree will show us the bones, this is what gives an appreciated for the actual scale and size of it! I really like the bronze tones in this sign post too!
All the best

The tree, known to be as the largest living thing on the planet, this another shot almost comprehensive with information about this giant. Lovely colour rendition and bit of gloss is eye catching against the darker background, it's sharp, clear and well placed in the composition. Another fine effort worth sharing, Congrats.
