Happy New Year, Happy Trees!

Happy New Year, my darlings!

Back to the trees. Since I haven't been out there too much with my own camera lately...but since it seems appropriate to start the year off with some breathtaking tree imagery...I have looked no further than National Geographic, since their photography is never anything short of fantastic. Feast with your eyes, as I have. These trees are enough to make you certain of a spectacular 2012.

(I've listed the photographer under each image. Click the caption text to go to the Photo of the Day page where it was found, and for photo descriptions).

Wow, I can't remember when last I paged through a National Geographic, they still choose wonderful photos.

You may enjoy Rex Vicat Cole, a master landscape painter. His books are available through the web.

After studying what he had to say about the anatomy of trees, my perspective and focus about this subject changed.

Trees are more than this or that.
