Dead Trees

Discussion in 'Landscape' started by davidtriplett, Oct 26, 2016.

  1. I find that dead trees, particularly those with highly sculptural forms, have become a staple of my landscape images. Some examples follow, below. Since I live and mostly travel in the desert Southwest and Intermountain regions of the US, dead trees frequently form significant, even outstanding artifacts and points of interest. Does anyone else find this to be true for their work?

  2. Another example:

  3. And one more:

  4. Sometimes, it's hard to tell the difference between "dead" and "barren", especially in Winter. But, for an Arizona pine in Spring, there's not much doubt.

  6. Dead trees are some of nature's most expressive forms for me.

  9. I'm a fan! So many great shapes and history to ponder with these old dead trees.

  11. Hello everyone. 30+ years ago I hiked the Sierra's with a 4x5 looking for dead trees and other Adamesqe subjects. These days I am at lower altitudes, but still looking for the same opportunities with the 6x6 & 6x9 folders. Enjoy, Bill

  17. Although these trees look like they were burned, they were really killed by an advancing geyser pool in Yellowstone.
