My friends and I headed to the mountains on Veteran's Day and wandered around Apple Hill. The last time I showed you around Apple Hill, my camera battery died and I only had my cell phone to capture the beauty (not very well, I might add).
So this time I went all out with my SLR and tried to capture each moment as well as I could. Not an easy feat considering how much eye candy is on Apple Hill (seriously, you guys need to go if you're ever in Northern California).
In the midst of gazing around at the endless vistas and beautiful vineyards, I realized trees took up the majority of my photos.
They say people photograph what they're scared to lose. Ironically enough, over two hundred trees were chopped down in my neighborhood last week due to an infection spreading across the river. It was traumatizing seeing all the beautiful cherry blossom trees I grew up with being placed in the heartless chopper.
Maybe that's why I couldn't stop taking tree photos at Apple Hill? I don't know. Either way, my love for trees has grown and it was obvious I'm a little more than obsessed with them now.
From one tree lover to another, I leave you with this quote:
"Even if I knew that tomorrow the world would go to pieces, I would still plant my apple tree."
