Do you ever find that you get so used to the trees and plants around you that when you go some place new you are fascinated by flora that you have never seen before or haven’t seen in a long time? It’s like when we travel from Canada to Florida, we watch for the palm trees to start appearing because they are such a novelty to us.
On our street there is an abundance of maple trees, poplars, and evergreens, but that’s about it. So, when I started exploring on our mini vacation, I was delighted to see birch and oak trees. It was really funny actually. I was like a little kid, running around collecting the acorns that littered the ground because it has literally been years since I have seen an acorn. I have always had a thing for birch trees too, and I find them interesting to photograph because of the way the bark sometimes peels and curls off the trunk. There is such a variety of curves and textures.
I found this awesome birch tree at Wright Point Resort that looks like it starts out as one tree at the ground but actually splits off into six separate trees. For some reason it really caught my eye, and every time I walked by it I felt the urge to snap some pictures. What kinds of trees do you like to photograph?
