Spectacular Starlit Photos Of The World’s Oldest Trees By Beth Moon

San Francisco-based photographer Beth Moon spent an astonishing 14 years hunting down our world’s oldest trees, for her Diamond Nights project.
She journeyed for miles upon miles to truly wild and remote locations, which are far from civilization and light pollution in the southern hemisphere of Africa in Botswana, Namibia and South Africa.

Her photos feature baobabs and surreal quiver trees, and are titled after constellations named by the ancient Greeks and Romans. She took majority of these photos during moonless nights, shot with a wide angle lens and ISO of 3200 – 6400.

“Our relationship to the wild has always played an important role in my work. This series was inspired by two fascinating, scientific studies that connect tree growth with celestial movement and astral cycles.” she explained on her website.
