Amazing biomass in a western Sierra forest



Another one from my recent visit to Kings Canyon. I posted a similar one with sequoia trees. This one is actually more impressive even if the trees are shorter. It shows the amazing amount of biomass produced by a forest in the western Sierra. 

The photo was taken along the hiking trail around Zumwalt Meadows in the Cedar Grove section of the park.  I believe many of the trees are ponderosa pines. 

Settings: Nikon D5100, Nikon DX 10-24mm lens at 15mm, 1/50th second handheld, f/8, ISO 100, converted to black and white in Lightroom 4. Click on the photo to see it larger please.
