If there is a tree in the desert and you don’t know what it is … and you are in the southwestern part of the U.S., you can pretty much say “ironwood” and be right.






This particular ironwood was in a front yard in suburban Phoenix and in much better shape than most of the ones you see out in the desert. It showed off nicely in black and white.

  1. I love these gnarled and artistic trees! I always try to take artsy photos of tree trunks wherever I go but I don’t seem to get ones that look like they belong in a coffee table photography book, like you do. Thanks for accomplishing what I haven’t been able to do.
