Did you know that there are ancient trees on our planet that are thousands and thousands of years old?
Some of them have been around for so long, they even predate the existence of Islam and Christianity.
I myself have always been fascinated by trees and felt a special connection to them.
In this collection of breathtaking photographs, Beth Moon — a photographer based out of San Francisco — traveled all around the world to capture some of the most remarkable ancient trees that she could find.
“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” explains Beth Moon.
She published her incredible photos in her book “Ancient Trees: Portraits Of Time” which will be linked at the bottom of this article. Here you can have a sneak preview of her journey.
