Another Tree Shot. April 22, 2012

Here’s a pair of oaks in an incestuous embrace:

I’ve photographed these trees before, but it’s been a few years now, so I thought I’d revisit them.  This photo needs work; now that I have a sense of what atmospherics I’m looking for I’ll be back to shoot it again until I get it right.

This shot is courtesy of Elliot, with about one degree of tilt.  I was lying on my side with my head down hill and my face squeezed between the camera and ground, so the composition was a bit rushed.

Still, the verdant mossy bark gives it an other-worldly feel, and I like it well enough to keep trying for the money shot.

Now those are a beautiful pair of trees. I happened across this lovely little video last week about mother trees. I have a feeling you’ll enjoy it as much as I did.

Susan, that video was a beautiful affirmation of something I intrinsically know, that plants (even of different types) interact, “communicate” if you will, sometimes by a myco-rhyzal symbiosis, sometimes through an actual physical intermingling of root systems, with connections and sharing of sugars and minerals. It was great to hear that so clearly explained by a Ph.D !
