I’m not much of a gardener. I didn’t inherit that gene from my mother but those closest to me know that I’m intrigued by trees. I couldn’t tell you the names of most species but the growth, strength, fragility, life supporting aspect and physical appearance of trees have always impacted my consciousness.
I first photographed this beach strip tree as part of a street photography jaunt. In admiring its Acacia-like shape, I was struck with the idea to return to it later and create this low-light nature landscape.
