My Six 'Tree' Entries For The PhotoGames

in landscapephotography •  9 months ago


Fog obscured the mountains along the coastline of Northern California. I loved how straight the fog laid and how the trees contrasted it with intricate twists and turns


While I was driving down the coastline of California after a camping trip with my dad, we decided to take a pitstop at a lunch spot. We happened to have taken an exit with beautiful and massive trees surrounding the area with cabins and scenic rest places. (Did you catch the bench in the middle of the pathway? That's my favorite part of the shot)


The grass looked so lush in the forest after a storm near Cleveland National Forest in Southern California. I was visiting my dad and I'm so thankful I decided to bring my camera with me!

I took this photograph 3 years ago and I still love sharing it and showing it. I was in anaheim, CA and I had just parked in an indoor structure to walk around an outside mall for a bit. I guess it was just perfect timing but the light rays shining through the trees will just stunning. I had to snap a picture on my phone. I love the shadows they created on the concrete.

Just a few weeks ago I was exploring the snowy path through the trees in Breckenridge, CO and snapped this shot.

I loved the semi-obscured Ferris Wheel behind all the palms. I took this in an outdoor mall in Irvine, CA
