    Leaf Me Alone (Arbor Day Trees)


    CNN PRODUCER NOTE     For years, greghogan has been photographing trees, especially trees that stand alone in the middle of a field. “I find them peaceful and spiritual in some way,” he said. “They always catch my eye when I am out exploring.”
    - Jareen, CNN iReport producer

    For many few years now I have had a love for capturing trees in pictures. What I really love is to find a tree all by itself, alone, in a field, away from its brothers and sisters. There is something about it that is spiritual and peaceful and reflective. I can be driving down a road, see it, and immediately pull over to capture its portrait. I honestly did not know about "Arbor Day" until today when I saw the headlines in the CNN feeds. So I wanted to share my favorite tree images. These are for all the people that sometimes may stand alone in life. Just remember you may feel like you stand alone, but your are strong. You are Strong like these trees. Happy Arbor Day.
