Tree Watching in Seattle: Branching Patterns

February 20, 2012

New branches, like a row of Vs, grow on this maple tree

When I look for potential photographs, my eyes seek out patterns and composition.  Winter is a great time to look at the branching patterns of trees because their shapes are exposed and still free of foliage.

Cascading pattern of new branches with buds

Repeating branching pattern

These new branches stand like a row of prehistoric palm trees

An infinite variety of patterns in nature
