A Woman Spent 14 Years Photographing the World’s Oldest Trees, and Here Are The Results

Did you know that there are ancient trees on our planet, which are thousands of years old? Some of them live so long that they are even older than the existence of Islam and Christianity.

The 14-year-old Beth Moon’s journey to photograph ancient trees took her across the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East and Africa. Some of the photographed trees grow in isolation, in remote mountains, private estates or natural reserves. All, however, share the mysterious beauty perfected over the years and the power to connect us all with the sense of time and nature, which is actually much greater than ourselves. It is the beauty and power that Moon captures in her extraordinary photographs.

“I believe that these symbolic trees, which in my opinion are the oldest living monuments, will be of particular importance especially at this time when our focus is on finding better ways to unite with the environment,” explains Beth Moon.

Below you can take a look at her stunning images. Enjoy!
