    Without Artemis I would have underestimated the fallen trunk size by 90%!

    A great idea to add a Greek Goddess for scale. ;^)

    I have also printed it full-frame. The shown image is the bottom half of the negative. The rest on the image is just the trunks going up, no sky. The bent redwood at her feet gently curves upward with little reduction in diameter (about 4 feet diameter). The butt end of the log Jackie is on is raise up in the air about 6 to 10 feet, as the redwood fell over another.

    The first image of the boys (8x10, 165mm lens, pt/pd print) is taken a good 25+ feet above the forest floor -- from on top of a redwood that is on top of another redwood. They arranged themselves on the broken stump of an ancient redwood.

    Walking on these fallen trees through the forest is amazing -- remember, once down, they are longer than a football field. I tossed in a couple more that match the OP's topic. All 8x10 negatives.

    Your kin greatly add scale and perspective

    I was just looking at my finger size fallen twigs

    A single tree struck down by Mount Saint Helens, Sunday morning, May 18th, 1980.

    On the lake are thousands of floating trees that suffered the same fate. They’re still there to this day. Mount Saint Helens is behind me, and in the far distance you can see Mount Rainier, which will eventually lose its temper, too.

    I was about the post this in the standing tree thread, but then I remembered this fallen tree thread. The fallen tree (background) is indeed that, a single fallen tree with forked trunks and big limbs. The gnarled shapes of both trees, Limber Pines, are due to the high altitude and rough weather. These trees do well up here, though the mountain pine beetle is now killing them across the land. I discovered that the name, “Limber Pine,” refers to their flexible branches, a good idea for such a windy-snowy-hostile place.

    Still only a re-photographed 5.5x14 negative -- I have gotten one almost good-looking print.

    Knowing your experience in the woods, I bet you arrived from the other side, walking across the tree bridge with perfect confidence and LF gear on your back.

    I had not gotten the pack for the 11x14 yet -- I was still carrying it in a suitcase at this point.
