Hello friends, today I have more photos for you from my trip to Wheeler Historic Farm in Salt Lake City with my photography class. My professor had us meet him at Wheeler Farm one day to walk around and take photos of all the beautiful things the farm has to show-and there were many things. This meant I took a TON of photos, and there were just too many to share in one post. So I decided to break it down into different themed weekly posts instead. Last week I shared photos of the beautiful old equipment that they have around the property, and this week I’ve decided to share photos of the blossoming trees. I’ve always loved taking photos of trees, and it’s even better when I can get a good shot of the a tree contrast against bright skies. Depending on your exposure, you can end up with a beautifully highlighted photo of the tree, or a stark contrasted sky shot with a tree silhouetted against it-it’s lovely. The trees at the farm all looked beautifully maintained, so I can only assume that they work with someone similar to these Professional arborists Placer to keep them looking their best all year round.
Spring is also a great time to take photos of trees due to the changes that are occurring. Many of these trees were still bare from the harsh Winter cold, but there were also many that were budding, blossoming, and starting to shake off the winter chill. Watching a tree make it’s way out of it’s stark winter sleep and into a world filled with vibrant leaves and blossoms is kind of beautiful, and being able to document that via photography and share with the world is even better.
What are your favorite kind of trees?
