A Gathering of Sorts
When I look through my Lightroom Catalog, I find that I photograph trees a lot. I am still trying to figure out why I’m drawn to trees. Perhaps it’s because they are so prevalent in the natural landscape or that they have so much character or perhaps there is a deeper connection. Whatever the reason, I find trees fascinating.
I remember playing with my son who was probably 4 at the time and acting out scenes from “Lord of the Rings”. I hoisted my son on my shoulders and pretended I was the great Treebeard. I acted out various scenes from the movie including stomping and smashing those evil orcs. My son absolutely loved it as we overpowered evil. Recently, we watched the trilogy together and both smiled and laughed when the scenes with Treebeard and the rest of the Ents showed up. The trees were so strong and powerful and they were wise. That’s probably why I love photographing them. Here are some of my favorite tree images from my collection.
