Tree Seeds

I found these seed pods and seeds on a walkway next to Bulloch Hall in Roswell.  I think this is from a cypress tree but I’m not definitely sure on that.

I was really attracted by the spiky exterior of the seed pod and then I saw the seeds themselves as they had been scattered when the pod bust open.  I brought a few home to do a little macro work and capture this detail of nature.  To give you an idea of size on this, one of the fully-opened seed pods is about the size of a penny.

Photography is my way to capture and share the amazing beauty of God’s handiwork in the people and places that I experience every day. I focus mainly on nature and travel subjects but also do alot of event work for my church and the occasional wedding or portrait session. My residence is Roswell, Georgia – a northern suburb of Atlanta. I try to get around the Southeast as often as possible and would love to explore other parts of the USA and the rest of the world.
