I haven't done an inventory but I'd bet a tidy sum that I have more tree photos in my catalogues than any other subject. Usually those trees are accompanied by a sky-full of clouds or bulbous boulders resting eternally by their trunks. On a most fortunate day I'll have all three in a single frame - a photographic hat trick, a trifecta. A trio such as this provides all a landscape photographer needs; texture, light and shadow, the quiet breath of nature, a pleasing arrangement of elements and, of course, land. As Martha would say, 'it's a good thing.'
