World’s Oldest Trees.

San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon spent 14 years taking these beautiful photographs of the oldest, rarest and largest trees on Earth. Moon’s work is composed of 60 images which were recently published in her book Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time. In the book, Beth shares all of the beautiful images she’s taken of trees around the world. Here’s what she had to say about her work.

“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, celebrating the wonders of nature that have survived throughout the centuries.”

Here are the amazing pictures!
