Collection of treescapes from a journey through the Swiss Alps in 2019.
Trees in the mountains are a special kind. They are often exposed to the toughest of elements. They brave deep snow, icy cold and wild storms. The higher up they grow, the more this becomes visible in their forms until they cease to exist entirely…
“A mountain tree if it would see
The far horizons and the stars,
May never know a sheltered place
Nor grow symmetrical in grace.
Such trees must battle doggedly
the blasts, and bear the scars.”
– Loyal Marion Thompson
