Did you know that there are ancient trees on our planet that are thousands and thousands of years old?

Some of them have been around for so long; they even predate the existence of Islam and Christianity.

I have always been fascinated by trees and felt a special connection to them.

In this collection of breathtaking photographs, Beth Moon — a photographer based out of San Francisco — traveled all around the world to capture some of the most remarkable ancient trees that she could find.

“Standing as the earth’s largest and oldest living monuments, I believe these symbolic trees will take on a greater significance, especially at a time when our focus is directed at finding better ways to live with the environment” explains Beth Moon.

She published her incredible photos in her book “Ancient Trees: Portraits Of Time” which will be linked at the bottom of this article, along with her website and Facebook profile.

Here you can have a sneak preview of her journey.

Enjoy!
