I've been photographing trees for as long as I've been taking portraits of people. These are just a few of the thousands of photographic tree images I have done for personal pleasure. I often stop the car just to photograph a tree that's caught my eye, driving my family - they're usually with me - crazy. Taking the portrait of a tree is only part of the equation, I actually enjoy the photoshop work as much . . . it reminds me of the print bleaching I used to do in my darkroom.
