Have you ever just stopped and really looked at a tree? Trees are mother nature’s sculptures. Each one is unique and individual. Taken as a whole, a tree is beautiful but looked at closely for it’s individual parts, trees are simply quite amazing.
We often make the mistake of only trying to capture the tree as a whole. We think we must portray the tree’s grandness in order to have a successful photograph. To me, the interesting parts of the tree are not just the size or the color but also the shape. Along with the shape, how a tree interacts with it’s neighbors is also important to portray.
I took the pictures below because they captured the soul of the tree or the tree’s interaction with its neighbors. I hope to inspire you to take a moment in your busy day and get up close and personal with a tree.
