Trees. They come in all shapes and sizes. A common sight in many areas, they’re also easily ignored. But they are truly a thing of beauty. Some colors in the autumn, then return to their green beauty the following spring. Others hang on to their foliage and stay green throughout all the seasons. Coming in an array of shapes and sizes, they are wonderful to observe.
One of natures greatest gifts to our environment. Not only are they pleasant to look at, they help provide us with the oxygen we breath, they provide lumber for our shelters, furniture and other projects. Not only do they shelter us but they provide shelter for many of Earth’s creatures.
Below are a few of my recent fine art photographs of trees. I hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoyed making them. And, if you’d like, you can view more of my work at http://www.bob-decker.pixels.com.
I love the image of the red /orange light in the forest surrounding the old tree. That would look great as a large metal print I think! Getting some sense out of the complexity of a forest is tough. I have always tried to “see the wood from the trees” but it can be tricky. I have sound that sometimes applying a digital painting effect can be great to simplify the composition. I tried this in this panoramic photo of a walnut tree plantation on Kauai https://steven-heap.pixels.com/featured/oil-painting-impression-of-mahogany-forest-steve-heap.html
I think the painted version works well here.
Steve, I have that tree image printed on a 16×20 canvas. Trust me, the computer screen does not to the details justice. The textures of the bark and moss are really outstanding on a print. I may have to try a metal print of it sometime in the future. Thanks for commenting.
