She Spent 14 Years Snapping The World’s Most Ancient Trees In Amazing Photographs


Did you have any idea that there are old trees on our planet that are a great many years old?

Be straightforward. When was the last time you had a decent gander at the trees in your own garden, or around your neighborhood? The ones you see on the way to class or work, or along your day by day walking routine. Have you ever thought of saving some quality time to appreciate the trees that you see and observe them on your way? For a considerable amount of us, the most common response is ‘no.’

Many of us are occupied with our everyday plans. We don’t have the opportunity to focus on what we consider to be unimportant things. At the point when we travel, many of us are on our telephones. We get business calls, critical notices, consistent look on Facebook, an easygoing look through Instagram and many of us don’t even see the face of the individual situated right beside us on a public bus or train. So, normally they don’t see the trees or blooms.

The truism “stop and smell the roses” can be applied to numerous roads and can be utilized to value anything in nature. Like huge ancient trees, for instance.

Beth Moon is a photographer who lives in San Francisco. She has been looking for the world’s oldest trees for just about two decades. For a long time, she has gone all around the globe to catch the most wonderful trees that grow in rural areas and show up as though they may be as old as the earth itself.

“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” reports Moon in her artist explanation.

Sixty of Beth Moon’s duotone photographs were distributed in a book titled “Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time”. Here you can have a review of the book, loaded with unusual and most radiant trees ever.
