Circle of Life:The trees of Camden

It’s probably one of the longest projects I’ve taken on, but also one of the more enjoyable ones too.
There is a beautiful row of trees on the drive into the town of Camden, NSW and after driving past them and occasionally take a few pictures over the course of my career.
I thought it would be cool to photograph them through the changing seasons.

I started out in the Winter of 2020 (August) and shot right up until just last week finishing in June.
In all fairness I planned on continuing until this August for a complete 12 record. But as we are now in the middle of a Covid lockdown in Sydney, it feels like a pretty good time to share it.

All picture were shot from pretty much the same location. I tried shooting from the exact same spot early on, but having to avoid parked cars and random busses, I had to slightly alter the angle everytime I went. But it’s all from pretty much the same spot within 5-10 meters. And all shot with the same lens the 70ml-200ml which I love for landscapes pictures.

Once we get out of lockdown I still might shoot for a couple more months and then finally put it to bed.
I’m not entirely sure what type of trees these are but if someone does know I’d love a comment below that would be awesome.

As the seasons changed you can really see the awesome colors of the seasons. Each had their own style and story to tell. It was just a joy to photograph this really cool site over the past 12 months.

I’ll look do do something similar again as I think with the right location you can really tell a cool story in pictures of the nature that we can to call our hometowns.

Till next time!
