I like trees that are grand and usually stand apart from others;  trees that look like they can tell a good story, have lived a good life, witnessed a lot;  trees that are beautiful but also a bit haunting. Once I find the right tree, I set up my tripod and cameras, compose, focus, plan my shoot, take notes and wait for the light. Exposure and lighting time can be from 10 minutes to 2 hours or so. I use a handheld modified spot light to light the trees.

*During the exposure of Trees in Marsh, a family of beavers let it be known that they did not want me in their pond (they surrounded me while I was in an inflatable raft and began to slap their tails in the water).  A bit scary at 3 am floating in the water in the middle of the woods.
