The canopy of this Weeping Hemlock tree gave me such a good feeling. I crawled on my hands and knees to get under the branches to give me a unique perspective – looking up through the tree branches. I chose a 28mm lens to give me as much reach as possible. I wanted all the branches to just reach out. Overcast skies were critical for this shot, as I needed soft even lighting. This was the fifth morning in a row back to this tree. Now was the time to shoot. I also needed conditions to be dead calm critical to capture the depth of the shot.

This Hemlock had so much elaborate tree branches and the tree itself really told a story. The symmetry of the tree caught my eye as I shot it from many different angles. I chose this frame and composition for the gallery. The twists and turns of all the branches reaching out to touch the sky.

There is something so simplistic and so powerful about this stunning tree. If you stand and look at it long enough you can easily see why.
