There are too many wonderful trees. I love the cherry blossoms season in Washington, DC around the Tidal Basin, so have some great ones of those. Weeping willows are beautiful too and there is a particularly great one in the Constitution Gardens.  


But... my favorite tree is probably the Jacaranda. They have them in warm places like South American and Australia, but also in Valencia, randomly blooming in artichoke fields or lining streets in small villages.

These are two of my favorite jacarana photos - both taken near Massalfassar.

I took this photo while hiking at Waimea Canyon State Park a few years ago.  The silvery-white bark really jumped out against the red sand and green canyon walls.

I took this in Sierra City. I love the way this family of pine trees encompasses this house. Another favorite tree of mine is in Silver Lake  at the
Chandelier Tree. A local artist finds broken chandeliers, fixes them and then hangs them from his tree outside of his house. Pretty whimsical.

The shoe tree. I took a week-long road trip from Branson to Ashland this fall with two friends. On our way home, we passed this tree just off of US Hwy 395 (a couple miles north of the Hwy 70 intersection) in Northern CA and just had to stop. And of course we threw our shoes on it.

I took this picture at the Nyaung Ohak in the Inthein Village in Inle Lake, Myanmar. There are ancient temples, pagodas and stupas everywhere and this tree had taken a life of its own and grew tall and beautiful out of this stupa.

This palm tree is nothing special, but its more about the location on a very very small island. On the picture you see the whole island located in the carribbean sea. Kuna Yala Panama.

I found and photographed the U2 Joshua Tree (the very tree they used on the album cover) back in the 90s. It took a few days to find it, but I still have one of the shots framed and hanging on my wall.

I absolutely love this question!!

I took this first one on a dreary winter day at the Le Palais Royal in Paris. I love how perfect the trimming is.

I took this one on an even drearier day in the Tuileries.
