This image of the large beech tree on High Street in Portland, Maine is composed of 12 individual shots taken at 50mm. This magnificent tree sits between two of the buildings of the Portland Museum of Art. The base of its trunk looks like an elephant's foot, and its branches tower over all its surroundings. The shadows from the almost horizontal early morning light accentuated its massive yet delicate intricacy.
