I like trees. After asking to take his photograph, I gave this old cottonwood a big hug and proceeded on my way.

Great angle and depth of field Steve. Really like the rough texture of the tree bark leading our eyes up to the sky

Steve - Excellent depth in this photo, with good focus bottom to top. The angle offers an interesting 'tree hugger's' perspective. Well done! Thad

I too enjoy this perspective and clear details throughout. Wonderful textures. A place I would enjoy spending time. Thank you for sharing it.

The angle of photo really allows you to perceive the size of the tree. And I love the blue sky in the background!

Superbly taken I like the most is how you put focus to details and the far away although important aspect of the tree are a bit outta focus. Overall 10/10

He does seem a bit shy, nice of him to let you take the snap and nice of him to smile a little Mona Lisa smile for you as well.
