I came across a very intimate scene during a hike over the weekend. This is, as far as my limited skill at tree identification takes me, a Beech tree that has grown slowly while it’s much larger companion (oak?) has surrounded the smaller tree with new growth.
This photograph was taken in Seminary Woods in St. Francis, Wisconsin. This is the oldest urban forest in the state. The photo was shot with a 4×5 view camera using a 6×17 roll film back on 120 black and white film.
