This is a grand old tree, and here I hope to showcase its texture and form, emphasizing its size, strength, and individuality.
This is the same tree as that in Ancient Growing Majesty, which shows the view from underneath and emphasizes it life, growth, and communal nature.

My technician is catching up with my artist. I recently improved the photo above and also wanted to try this same shot again.
