That's pretty unusual, you don't find these in the backyard everyday.
Pretty good...

That is great!
I practice bonsai and lots of people try to achieve that sort of stuff on their trees. May I post it on a bonsai forum, with full credits to you?

It's difficult to imagine the immensity of the tree without something to reference it against. In the case where you're trying to show the size of something, sometimes having a person in the photo puts it into perspective.

Not sure I'd want to get inside that tree though No telling WHAT lives inside that neat cave!!!

I've been to a redwood forest once... it was really odd being with trees that big.

Was this one still alive? With that much missing in the center, it's not a good sign.

Yeah, The Redwood Forest is amazing!

It is not uncommon to see trees missing significant amounts from the center thriving for many many years.

I think the appropriate shot would be a head sticking *out* of the tree. That would give it scale, and personality.
