Augustus William Ericson (1848-1927)
I’d been looking for these old photos of the redwoods since The Ken Burns movie. Here are some links to this wonderful photographers photographs, even though they are tragic in our mismanagement of our forest they supply a record of our lost forests.
This is a 1905 panorama of Richmond from The Library of Congress, P&P Online Catalog, that I stitched together using Autostitch. It is a free software that can be found in the blogroll widget to the right of blog page.
I’m running out of time on getting photo of Cypress tree I wanted. Hear is a detail of a panorama of my favorite tree photo I took this summer(not sure what kind of tree this would be).
A Bald Cypress with a Bald Eagle’s nest I took in 1989.
“Julia lived in a 180-foot tall, 600-year old redwood tree (Luna) for over two years, from December 10th, 1997, to December 18th, 1999, in order to prevent it from being cut down by the Pacific Lumber Company–a successful endeavor that secured several acres of buffer around Luna in a settlement.”
We have Cypress here in the South East that are century old trees also. Looking foward to photographing soon!
