Trees in a Swirl

Category: Outdoor Scenes


Photo and caption by Lea Ricolcol

On a visit to an ecology park in Davao, the Philippines, I saw these rows of mangosteen trees. I decided to make a seemingly ordinary subject into an extraordinary image. That was the first time I saw what a mangosteen tree looks like, and in this image, - what mangosteen trees look like when they are in a swirl.

Location: Davao City, the Philippines
