Capturing a captivating tree while visiting Tejon Ranch.

This breathtaking tree stands tall at Tejon Ranch in Lebec, California. I captured this shoot while assisting on a commercial shoot. I turned to my right and became instantly smitten with this wondrous tree which provoked images of Disney's trademark Tree of Life to fill my mind, as well as an overwhelming sense that we as people are such a small part of something so much greater than ourselves.
