The picture was taken a few years ago on a swampy riverbank in North Carolina. The branches are from Baldcypress. Among the pictures I’ve taken with a normal lens, this one’s a personal favorite.

  1. Fantastic – makes me think of Japanese lettering somehow – I like too how the image falls into three distinct places..


    1. Thanks Steve and thanks for the link.

      You’re right–these spindly branches work well in an image like this but hardly convey the immensity and cragginess of old growth Baldcypress. I’ve seen unforgettable trees in North Carolina and elsewhere–I’m sure you have too. If I could grant a wish for eastern North America it would be to bring back the Singer Track, and all the other wilderness where these amazing trees once grew.
