The Best Upshot Photos Ive Ever Taken...

Post by John Harvey » Thu Aug 20, 2015 12:42 am

I was sorting through my photos and I decided to make a compilation. I love upshot photos of tall trees. Here are the 60 I've taken that I like the most. Some common and some legendary. They range from 123' white oak to 150' tulip trees to 190' Eucs to some of the top ten tallest trees (360'+) in the world., obviously redwoods. A few are leafless, some in Autumn colors, some green. It will take a few posts....

John- Lots of cool photos almost hard to go through them all. I have many that I have taken over the years and I to like the perspective that they have. Makes us seem almost like an insect. Larry

Motreecans-that's a new one. Our terminology is ever expanding.

The double white oak is one of my faves...but they are all impressive!

Ooo....very nice.

Just out of curiosity, what type of tree was this? A cypress of some kind?
