You wont believe that these Ancient Living-beings are still alive! Beth Moon has spent 14 years to Discover them.

​A marvel to wonder how majestic these ancient living-beings stand! Yes as we all know that most plant do not have a fixed life-span and these Ancient trees give testament to that fact.

Beth Moon, a photographer based in San Francisco, has been searching for the world’s oldest trees for the past 14 years. She has traveled all around the globe to capture the most magnificent trees that grow in remote locations and look as old as the world itself.

“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” writes Moon in her artist statement.

Sixty of Beth Moon’s duotone photos were published in a book titled “Ancient Trees: Portraits Of Time”. Here you can have a sneak preview of the book, full of strangest and most magnificent trees ever.

It is a sad fact to see how our natural world is full of such graceful creations but instead of appreciating their beauties we sort to criminal acts of deforestation and pollution. May God bring a day when we humans finally wake up!
