40 Naturally Beautiful Photos of Trees

40 Naturally Beautiful Photos of Trees

Most great designers take their inspiration from the world around them. The natural world can often provide better inspiration for us than all of the graphic blogs put together.

Trees are one of nature’s most beautiful creations, and the following 40 photos showcase the natural beauty of trees. I hope that their variety, textures and lighting help inspire you.

    WOW. These photos are fantastic…absolutely beautiful! They remind me of a book I recently purchased for a friend called “PersonaliTrees: Let the Human Spirit Awaken in the Presence of Trees”. It’s a coffee table book filled with beautiful pictures of trees that portray human emotions and conditions, with perfectly matched inspirational quotations. Tress are wonderful things! http://www.personalitreesbook.com

    These photos are absolutely beautiful and awesome. As I am not an expert on trees, it would have been helpful to have known the names of the trees in each photo. Perhaps I missed something? Any advice would be most appreciated.
