Giant Redwood Tree no. 1

Giant Redwood Tree no. 2
Two Wellingtonia stand either side of the gates of Campton & Shefford Cemetery. The difference in the colour of the foliage between these two trees can be most clearly seen in the second two photographs. Tree no. 1 has a definite blue tint, whereas Tree no. 2 is vivid green. Tree no. 2 has lost most of its branches down one side, perhaps another tree or another obstruction once stood nearby. Nevertheless they form a majestic entrance to the cemetery.
