Dramatic Tree Stock Photos

Photography, Photoshop 9 Comments »

We’ve got some free stock images of trees that have some natural drama, and some tree images with some dramatic treatment applied to them. It’s a set of four stock photos, all taken by us, far from our cozy 4 bedroom apartments, all for you :-) Use them as you wish.

The tree covered in freezing rain and ice image was taken at the entrance of a State Park in Tennessee or in Kentucky, I forget which… long drive. The other photos were taken in late fall in Illinois.

One photo is a tree lined pathway with long dark shadows that help define the path. Then there is a cluster of small trees in the woods with highly textured white, gray and black bark. The trees seem to grow and lean out from a central spot in the forest. Finally there is a silhouette photo of tree trunks and branches with the sun behind them. Read the rest of this entry »

Here is a cool old vector engraving of the sky opening up with streaks of light and cloud shapes. It makes me think of comic book style art. Could be a cool background graphic for a cd cover or something. Adding color gives it some visual pop.

Photography, Photoshop 7 Comments »

Here are some stylized bonsai tree photos for everyone. There are 8 stock photos in all, 4 bonsai trees with 2 stylistic photo treatments each.
