Tree appear in pictures all the time. They show up as green blurs in the backgrounds of portraits and as bit players in sweeping landscapes. But, for our January Photo Challenge, we dared our readers to make trees the stars of the show. The entries were every bit as epic as you’d expect.
The entries range from vast panoramas to intimate tree portraits, all of which have their own style and charm.
