Photographs and Information about Taiwan's Culture, Nature and People by Rich Matheson

Tree Photos 3 — People and Trees

Belaboring the tree photos (Tree posts 1 and 2). Photos of trees, and people enjoying them or their shade.

This is a five photo stitch so I could get the whole tree in without having the parallax distortion of a wide angle, or having to move too far back and lose the focus of the people practicing Tai Chi.

Another stitch so I could get some scale between the people and this massive, massive Banyan. Loses a lot at this size, though.

  1. Great pictures. Let me know if you’re planning on taking any in my neck of the woods. We’ve got some great betel nut and banana trees up here!
