21 Insanely Photogenic Trees

 

Sometimes, a single powerful element is enough to create an amazing photograph that remains imprinted somewhere in the back of your head. Such an element is often a tree, or more for that matter.

Throughout history, trees have been one of the interesting subjects for artists. That's because Mother Nature is the most complete artist there will ever be and trees are one of her best ways to show us that. Besides their crucial role of transforming carbon dioxide into oxygen, trees and forests are naturally calming for humans. You don't even have to see one in real life to feel some of its effects.

To prove that, we've put together a collection of 21 incredibly photogenic trees. From a scientific point of view, they're not all technically trees. For instance, bamboo belongs to the grass family and the Wisteria is a kind of vine.

But as photographers, we're interested in seeing beauty and thankfully, there is plenty of that in these images.
