For the last 14 years, Beth Moon has been circling the globe documenting the world's rarest trees. The San Francisco-photographer has traveled through the United States, Europe, Asia, the Middle East, and Africa on a trip that's brought her to the sites of trees that are sometimes more than 1,000 years old.

Moon's book, Ancient Trees: Portraits of Time, features 60 of her favorite prints in the form of full-page, duotone plates. For more information on how to get a copy, head over to Amazon.
