Beth Moon is her name. And she sees trees better than anyone else. She spent 14 years capturing the oldest trees in the world in photography and then wrote the book: Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time. Moon, is a San Francisco based photographer who has traveled the globe and to the most remote of locations, simply to capture their magnificence for us all.

Says moon on her website: "Many of the trees I have photographed have survived because they are out of reach of civilization; on mountainsides, private estates, and protected lands." And they are according to Moon, the world's greatest living monuments. She sees them as becoming more significant as time goes by and we work harder to live with our environment. Moon felt it was her duty to commemorate the lives of these "wonders of nature." Many of these trees are in danger of extinction. We salute Beth Moon, who in our book a star!
