Trees Please – A Majestic Showcase of Tree Photography

Trees have always been a part of my life. When I was younger I would climb them, and up until a few years ago, cut my own firewood. But my very first impactful memory occurred when, little more than a toddler, I was “impacted” by a falling limb as a result of getting too close to where my father was clearing brush. I remember some blood, a lot of yelling by my mother at my father, and a trip to the hospital.

Not that much I can say about photographing them other than “If you can see it, you can photograph it,” which I’ve always believed in. And here, that means “see” as in “perceive” i.e. visually comprehend. I do however make it a rule of thumb that even if I think I know (and photograph) the best “side,” I try and make it a point to walk all the way around my subject, just in case another attractive composition presents itself.

TREES CELEBRATE LIFE

Trees celebrate life
With leaves or without

Dance in the wind
Weep in the rain

Provide a delicate resting place
For birds and snow

Bear flowers and fruit
While branching above ground and below

Some by their contrast stand forth
Others by negative space defined

Trees (like humans) gather in groups
Or stand alone

Evolve a time sense that makes ridiculous
The frantic activities of man

How many kinds of green do you think there are?
In the Autumn a final explosion of color
Before the leaves fall.

Used by Man, wasted by Man
Provide their own monuments in defying Death.

    I love your collection of tree pictures.i love to take pictures of trees and just nature in general.i believe it all has beauty you just have to find it.

  2. Dawn LeBlanc says:

    Just a side note to say it’s a nice collection, but these images look oversharpened with significant artifacts? Very noticeable with foliage.

  3. Danka Antas says:

    I have really enjoyed your collection of trees Warren, which are also my favourite subject since I remember:) In the past I used to draw tress, now I shoot them. This is fascinating to observe the abundance of their types, shapes, colours. Trees, for me, are a symbol of the link between the Earth and the sky/heaven. I love thinking about them this way. In the country I live in, I can’t see such exotic trees like the ones you are showing here, so it’s a real pleasure to see your works.

    I love taking photos of trees, and I also love taking photos of the sky.

  5. Mohsin says:

    Great collection of photographs! I think trees are the single most beautiful creatures on the planet. They embody all the features of a photograhic subject and range in appearance from ‘ugly’ to ‘graceful’ to b’beautiful’ to ‘other-worldly’. Never is a tree ‘normal’ in appearance. Such wonderful beings.
    Trees rule the world.
