Words and Images: Ancient Giants

It wasn’t just a grove. It was a magical, mystical jungle of living, breathing giants that left Shaan awe struck. Neither of them spoke as they ambled slowly on the well-worn dirt paths and listened to the trees, some almost two thousand years old, as they related tales of times gone by.

On my recent visit to California I was treated to an awe-inspiring sight

Lets go home

HAPPY NEW YEAR!

Carnival of Life
