Angel Oak

This majestic Southern live oak (Quercus virginiana) is estimated to be more than 500 years old, and covering over 17,000 square feet. While touted as some to be the oldest living tree in the south, in fact there are bald cypress trees much older. But one cannot deny its presence... a photograph cannot possible capture the grandeur of such an object of beauty. While I have seen many photographs of this tree located just outside Charleston, I was fortunate enough to visit over the course of three days to capture an image under the perfect conditions. On my last morning, an overnight rain and morning light diffused by the clouds gave me ideal conditions to photograph it.

 I shot this image as a panoramic stitch of 8 separate photographs, giving a final resolution of over 120 megapixels. As you can see, the resolution is outstanding.

"Angel Oak" will be part of an upcoming new body of work entitled "Southern Exposure," to be released next year. Exclusive Artist Proofs (Limited Edition Numbers 1-25) are now available during its pre‐release phase. These will not be available once the full body of work is released in 2016.
