Trees are an essential part of nature, and if you appreciate nature you’ll be wowed by pictures and photos of beautiful trees.

I’m not quite sure what it is but I’m drawn to trees. Something about their shape, majesty, intricacy and symbolism awe me and I just want to look at tree photos all day long. Trees are simple yet chic, and they have a certain mystic aura about them that leaves you mesmerized.

So, it’s no surprise that they are very photographic. You can take different pictures of a particular tree in different seasons and get a wonderful collection of beautiful tree pictures.

This article 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 collection 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.

Nature is really beautiful, and trees, an integral part of nature, are proof of the incredible majesty that our world has to offer. Take some time to reconnect with nature and gaze at some of its wonders- in the form of trees.  You will be surprised at what you’ll discover.

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.

It’s really hard to say when trees look the most beautiful. It’s a tight debate between sunrise and sunset, and no matter what side you choose, you’ll agree that trees look fabulous during sunset.

Sunsets are generally breathtaking, and with a combination of beautiful trees the feeling the view invokes is indescribable. It’s no wonder people sit out just to enjoy this spectacle.

Between the summer months of June to August, trees take up a stunning appearance. This is because they bud, sprout, and grow fruits during this period. They’re lush, full and green. Everything is bright and resplendent, creating a vivid exciting atmosphere.

Throw in a ray of sun in the photo and everything becomes eerie, in a cool amazing way.

Here are some stunning photos of trees during summer.

Enthralling Photos of Trees in Autumn

Autumn is the time when trees shed their leaves, in preparation for the cold weather. In this moment they appear very different from how they used to. They change their colors this time and shed their leaves as well.

Here, I’ve gathered some beautiful photos of trees in autumn which are mesmerizing.

Inspiring Pictures of Trees in Winter

Winter is the time that tree form and structure take center stage, and a whole new level of interest can be gained. This time they paint a serene tranquil atmosphere. In place of the leaves they’ve shed you see tapering ice cubes and everything is so peaceful.

It makes you wanna gaze all day long.

Beautiful HDR Trees

High Dynamic Range imaging (HDRI or just HDR) is a set of techniques that allow a greater dynamic range of luminances between the lightest and darkest areas of an image than standard digital imaging techniques or photographic methods.

This wider dynamic range allows HDR images to more accurately represent the wide range of intensity levels found in real scenes, ranging from direct sunlight to faint starlight. (Wikipedia)

HDR Photography is always beautiful but when it come to Trees it gets even better. Hope you enjoy it 🙂

Medical Science says that trees are a guarantee of blessing for our health. I believe in this faith, not only because of medical science recommendation but its fascinating beauty. It is the symbol of life.

So we dedicate this post, and all the pictures therein, to trees and life itself.

Tree Photography Tips

Before I leave you, I’d like to share some tips about taking beautiful tree photos. Or wouldn’t you like to know how you can take such beautiful pictures? Here are the secrets:

  1. 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.
  2. Roots: These are important. 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. Sometimes it is enough to take pictures of the roots alone.
  3. Bark: set your focus on the bark, if you focus leaves and/or flowers but not the bark, your image will never look good.
  4. 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.
  5. 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.
  6. 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.
  7. 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.

In addition, here’s a video sharing tips taking photos of trees.

And, that’s it for now. If you liked this collection, don’t forget to share it, and also check out this posts showcasing of spring pictures. I’m sure you’ll love it.
