This is a collection of the most beautiful pictures of the most beautiful trees around the world.
Quite possibly, this is the best compilation of most beautiful tree photography post I have ever made. This post contains special effect based photography such as HDR and infrared photography, but most of them are just plain clicks. It’s the beauty of nature that I wanted to share here, not mastery of photography.
The post also contains trees from all seasons. You will find pictures from the winter when snow forms icicles and give them a harsh mythical look, pictures from autumn when the trees turn gold and cast a gloom all over, there are also pictures of summer when trees give shelter from the stroke of weather… and of course you will also find beautiful pictures of spring when these trees get refreshed.
Beautiful Trees from Around the World
This post is solely for inspiration and aspiration of photographers (and everybody else).
One intention I had for creating this post is that I love trees and I want everybody to respect them and try to plant them as many as they can. You don’t have to agree with me, but I believe trees are very important to our world.

Tree Photography Tips
And before I leave you, wouldn’t you like to know how you can take such beautiful pictures. Here are the secrets.
- Foreground: this is the most crucial element in tree photography. What makes a tree beautiful is its place in the surroundings. Make sure you include sufficient amount of foreground, not just the background and your photo will look much better.
- Roots: they can add a lot of expression in your image. Always take a look at the roots of the tree and decide if they should be added in the image.
- Bark: set your focus on the bark, if you focus leaves and/or flowers but not the bark, your image will never look good.
- Scale objects: you can include a person or anything else to show the scale of a tree. However, scaling is not always necessary. You’ll need to make a decision of whether you need the scale depending on the size and structure of your tree.
- Get high: I mean it in the literal meaning. Get on a higher plane so that you could be at the height of your focal object.
- Timing: some trees look best in bright sunshine, some look good during the twilight hour. You need to find the best time to click your tree, so you should visit your tree in different times of the day to find the best light settings.
- Experiment: we have the power of digital photography, we don’t have to care about films and their development anymore… so why not experiment with angles, distances, POVs and everything else. You should. YOU MUST.
Idea: If the tree you are clicking is approachable and you can keep visiting it, how about a timelapse photo. Take a photo from the same place in different seasons.
And, that’s it for today. If you liked this collection, don’t forget to check out the showcase of spring pictures. I’m sure you’ll love it.
