I happen to know — because +Trey Ratcliff and I met to do business over billiards in my neighborhood this week — that renowned travel photographer Trey Ratcliff is in San Francisco now. And I happen to know he is hanging around with a certain Tom of social tech fame — and that Tom hates Palm Trees.
Too bad, because along the Embarcadero, the main drag here, Palm Trees are ubiquitous. So I guess I’m not surprised that Trey’s Photo of the Day today is on Palm Trees. But these are Palm Trees he shot in Oahu. They’re still gorgeous. And as a native Floridian, I must say respectfully to Tom, it’s hard to imagine not loving these trees. But each to his own.
Check out Trey’s whole gallery at his stuckincustoms.com portolio page. Totally worth a beautiful browse.

On the Daily Photo, which he titles Palm Trees at Night, Trey writes:
One night in Oahu we were doing some photography along a beach. Off in the distance we saw some palm trees that were lit from the bottom. This was about a quarter mile from anything else, so that was sort of strange. But I thought it was so interesting to see them lit from the bottom with small green pools of light underneath that I decided to walk over there and see what was going on. After I got over there, there were endless compositions of these various trees. I grabbed about five different angles and then took a midnight-nature break of my own …
He used a Nikon D3X camera for his Trey Ratcliff Photo of the day, which we feature here as often as we can post them here at anewdomain.net.
