Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time by photographer Beth Moon

American photographer Beth Moon  has spent the past 14 years travelling the world in a quest to document the world’s biggest, rarest and oldest trees. Most have only survived thanks to their isolation on remote mountainsides, private estates, or nature preserves, but just a few maintain a proud, though often precarious, existence in the midst of civilization.

‘Standing as the earth’s largest and oldest living monuments, I believe these symbolic trees will take on a greater significance, especially at a time when our focus is directed at finding better ways to live with the environment, celebrating the wonders of nature that have survived throughout the centuries,’ she writes on her website.

    1. Merci mais il n’y a pas suffisamment de monde ici qui apprécie ces posts à leur juste valeur! Vous savez bien l’investissement que cela représente! Nous devrions exploser les compteurs, sans prétention.
      Cher confrère ou (consœur)!
      Félicitations à vous également…

    2. Confère.

      Je e cite : ” il n’y a pas suffisamment de monde ici qui apprécie ces posts à leur juste valeur”,

      …C’est un fait et c’est relativement curieux. Quoique la plus grande majorité préfère se contenter d’une petite citation ou d’une recette de cuisine.

      Reste à miser sur le reste du web.

      Pour : ” Vous savez bien l’investissement que cela représente! “,

      …Oh que oui ! Et je suis loin de publier ce que tu publies. C’est beaucoup de travail.

      Patientons et misons plutôt sur le Web (dans sa globalité) que sur la blogosphère.

      Pour ton site, nul doute qu’il percera et qu’il explosera les compteurs car ce que tu y publies est excellent, original et variés et l’ensemble sous le sceau de la qualité.

      Désolé car je t’ai tutooyé.

      Au plaisir de voir tes nouvelles publications et de te lire.

      Et… Ne te décourage surtout pas. Avec un peu de temps, ton travail sera largement reconnu à sa juste valeur.

  5. I have black and white photos of old snags that have washed out of the back country that were fairly compelling, but these have a far deeper reverence of the world of trees. Your work is wonderful!
