Winter plus rather harsh noon light created the impression of peering into a tree stripped of its leaves – the branches are in place, but nothing else. Structure is only broadly defined by the dark trunk and branches; the rest is an organic web giving a feeling of extremely evolved complexity – which is really not far from the truth. MT


About the prints
Prints are made by Printmaster Wesley Wong of Giclee Art using our proprietary Ultraprint process, which delivers extremely high real resolutions – up to 720 pixels per inch, or four times that of an iPad’s Retina display, a wide gamut, and very smooth tonal transitions. We print on either Canson Infinity Platin Fiber Rag baryta or Permajet Portrait White depending on the subject matter and size using Epson Ultrachrome archival-grade inks.

    One of the best tree photos I have seen!

    A beautiful way of making all those distracting details in a tree contribute instead, here with this wonderful shimmer.

    ( Interesting that all the shimmering twigs are more or less parallell, I’ve never thought of that. I guess that is part of the magic in this image – in addition to the light reflections in the bark of the tree and it’s closest neighbors.)
