We’ve All Got Trees

Tree study, Hilton Head Island South Carolina

I was recently scrolling through Instagram when I came across a post by Tony Sweet where he talked about how one of his most-photographed subjects is a single tree.  I happen to know of one tree in particular in Cades Cove that I refer to as “Tony Sweet’s Tree” even though lots of other photographers know about it too.

In his post states that he has “amassed a pretty large collection of single tree images in various formats, weather conditions, and times of year.”  It got me thinking about my own collection of trees, so I went out and found a few of them to post here.

I’ve been thinking in terms of themes lately anyway, and his post made me think of another possibility for a website gallery.  The choices never end…. 😉

(As a side note, I noticed lately that a number of people who have subscribed for email notification of new posts were not getting emails.  I think I have found and fixed the problem, but we’ll see.)

  1. One of my favorite subjects. I used to have a ‘tree’ gallery but I’m always looking at new gallery ideas and it eventually was replaced by something else, probably ‘rocks.’ This is a beautiful collection of an ever-fascinating subject.

  2. I also have a love with trees, especially isolated and solitary trees. I also have a lot of images of clouds. Both are favorites. This is a wonderful gallery. I think it’s a good idea to setup a tree gallery and expecting to see one.
