This weeks Lens Artist Challenge from Amy over at The World is a Book is centered around layered landscapes. I chose one of my favorite things in life: Trees.
I love trees for so many reasons – the beauty and depth they provide to landscapes, the shade they give for protection, and peace they bring when I am near. Not to mention all of the critical environmental benefits they bring to our eco-system.
Trees can have sooo many different meanings across cultures: inner strength, love, growth, power, courage, peace, good fortune, new beginnings, intuition, balance and promise, etc.
“A Tree with Strong Roots Laughs at Storms“
This image below was taken in Hyde Park, London just last week. This tree species is called the London Plane (cross between two different types of Sycamore trees). The sycamore tree is symbolic of strength, protection, eternity, and divinity.
I love the different types of layers contained within this image: the canopies, lamp-posts, people, and leaves, for a far as the eye can see.
I choose this….
