One thing I find that makes my tree photography more fun and interesting, is to offer you images of trees from unique perspectives. When I explore trees, I crouch down to see their roots, tip-toe to peek at their branches, and lean in to examine their bark. In my photography, I attempt to share my exploration of trees with you through my eyes (and my camera's, of course).
Yesterday I realized that one perspective I have not been able to enjoy or share is what it looks like to be up in a tree looking down. It’s something that few of us ever see ourselves, unless we are truly avid arborealists in the more general sense of the word. I’m not a professional tree climber, although I know some folks who are. I promise that whenever I finally get my chance to scale the trees, I’ll be certain to get some images to share with you from above.
Incidentally, these images were taken of another unknown tree located along the driveway. This one is adjacent to my neighbor’s home, and like so many of the trees around here, is too large to enjoy in just one shot. These are but a few glimpses of its grandeur. More to follow!
