Trees – an Amazing Variety of Shapes

Along with their biological role, trees have always played an important role in human culture, being a symbol of nature, environment, and even life itself. No wonder that artists, including photographers and painters, often illustrate trees in their works. The variety of shapes, one can witness looking through the tree showcase we have prepared today, really amazes. Some of the trees astonish with their giant dimensions and others feature absolutely weird and unusual shapes, one might not even associate with the tree species.

Being a part of the natural environment, trees themselves can make or define the entire scenery appearance. Just like the professional photo models, trees can form the core of the photography and define its emotional load and aesthetic feel. Looking at the tree photographs below, you will see a variety of distinct reflections, each symbolizing a particular feature: mightiness, urge towards living, mysteriousness, fertility, nobleness, wisdom, and joy. Unfortunately, the majority of humans have always treated trees as the raw material for their industrial needs, constantly devastating forests and forgetting that each tree is nothing but a small universe, which is a home for many living beings and also an oxygen factory for planet Earth. Hopefully, looking at the tree pictures below, people will be able to see the trees from the different angle – the one, where the true purpose and value of trees are clearly distinctive.
