This Woman Spends 14 Years Photographing These World’s Oldest Trees

Photographer Beth Moon has spent 14 years of her life traveling, searching and photographing the world’s oldest trees. She has traveled across the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa to capture the most magnificent trees with her camera.

“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,” Beth said.

Here are some of her best photos of strangest and most magnificent trees published in her book Ancient Trees: Portraits Of Time.
