When the wind blows these trees are fun to watch swaying back and forth high up. But if the wind is really fierce sometimes the sheer weight and bulk will eventually uproot these giants. Then if they do not have the soft forest floor to land on they can snap in half like a twig.
This tree fell across the ravine and although it is hard to judge it's size, I was barely able to touch the tree while standing beneath it.
You can see by these photos the real difficulty I was having getting pictures in the low-light forest and have some detail only to deal with where when sunlight did show through the colors got really blown out. Let's try a black and white and see how it looks.
